280,000 people served in the City of Limeira.
Odebrecht Ambiental - Limeira Facility manages the municipal water and sanitation services of Limeira through a concession contract. Odebrecht Ambiental - Limeira Facility was selected by a process of international competitive bidding among 18 other proposals. The operations started in 1995 and the duration of the contract is 30 years. Limeira is the first city in Brazil to enter into a concession for its municipal water and sanitation services.
Extending wastewater collection
At the beginning of the concession there were 164,000 people connected to the wastewater system, they represented 78% of the whole population. Thanks to the investment that has been made since 1995, the whole population was connected to the sewerage system by 2004; thus, the company achieved one of its main goals – collection of 100% of wastewater from the population – in less than 10 years. The following graphic shows this evolution. The number of people connected to sewerage system has been increased by 68%. The city is included in the regional sanitation plan named “Piracicaba, Capivai and Jundai”. At the end of 2010, the average of wastewater collection of the 62 municipalities from the valley was 85%, Limeira being one of the most advanced cities collecting 100% of its wastewater.
