To take precautions! This Wednesday there will be no water in much of Mazatlán


The production of the Los Horcones Water Treatment Plant will stop because the suction screen will be placed, which underwent corrective maintenance two weeks ago

Mazatlán, Sinaloa. – Jumapam has scheduled to stop the production of the Los Horcones Water Treatment Plant early this Wednesday, June 23, for the reinstallation of the suction screen that a couple of weeks ago was withdrawn for corrective maintenance.

The stoppage of operations will affect the supply of drinking water in a large part of the city, for an approximate period of 10 hours, which goes from 8:00 in the morning to 5:00 in the afternoon.

“Starting at 7:00 in the morning, we are going to lower costs and stop (the pumps of) the plant to reinstall the screen where the water inlet is, which is the one that cleans all the solids so that nothing reaches the pumps ”, Explained Arturo Valverde Hidalgo, Jumapam Operations Manager.

According to the schedule of the Operations Management, the Los Horcones Water Treatment Plant will stop production from 7:00 in the morning to 1:00 in the afternoon of this Wednesday, to make the replacement, and as soon as they finish the installation of the piece, the production of water is reactivated.

The general manager of Jumapam, Luis Gerardo Núñez Gutiérrez, estimated that the supply will be restored around 5:00 in the afternoon in the city, so he calls on the population to take care of the vital liquid even more, and take from today the measures to avoid being affected as little as possible with the stoppage of production.
