An announcement was recently made by the Peruvian government about a potential water project at Lake Titicaca.
The Ministry of Housing, Construction and Sanitation has been in the process of planning a water project around Lake Titicaca. They recently announced that they would make a final decision about the project before the end of the year.
The project involves constructing 10 water treatment plans at Lake Titicaca. The project has been in progress for over two years, making many people doubt it.
However, Gustavo Olivas Aranda, the Deputy Minister, asserted that the administration has made much headway on the project in the recent months. In fact, they originally planned to make the final decision on the project in June of 2017, but they have moved that date up to December of 2016.
This would be a huge step in the right direction for the problem of water and sanitation in Peru. If successful in Puno, this could open the door to other potential projects in various areas of the country.
