New sump pumps prevent Mazatlan flooding


The investment in construction was 35 million pesos

Mazatlan, Sinaloa.- Daniel Tirado Zamudio, director of Public Works, considered that the eight cárcamos “sump pumps” of the Golden Zone, which were built with the purpose of pumping the water faster and mitigating the floods in the sector, did pass the test after the first rain of the season, the early hours of last Sunday.

He said that the report that Luis Gerardo Nunez Gutierrez, general manager of Jumapam, passed on to him is that the eight gully were operating at 100% of their capacity and by 11:00 a.m. on Sunday all the water that accumulates in the cárcamo had already been removed.

The report I have, those operated by Jumapam, I spoke with the engineer Luis Núñez and he informed me that the eight cárcamos were operated at 100% of their capacity and by 11:00 in the morning they had already worked all the water that accumulates in the cárcamo”, Said.

Still on Monday, he said, they carried out routine activities at key points, where Mazatlan is known to be suffering from flooding.

He added that it was a very heavy rainfall in a short time, and one of the main problems they saw in many areas of the city, was garbage.

“We saw many grids where the garbage was upholstering the entrances of the grids, no matter how clean the ducts are, the floods are going to continue to occur, although it is the first rain, I want to think that for the second it will not be so much anymore, “ Reported.

Despite the fact that the municipal authority highlights the good functioning of the cárcamos, in social networks there were users who said otherwise.

The rains lasted almost all of Sunday morning and indicated that the cárcamos were launched at 7:00 in the morning.
