MAZATLAN.- The closure of the “El Crestón” wastewater treatment plant is inevitable, and if you go up the lighthouse you will realize that it is no longer in use, but where will the city’s drainage migrate? Keep reading.

It is estimated that next June 15 it will be closed definitively, to start with the construction of the Plaza de la Banda. Its dismantling is already 90 percent and for this reason the Municipal Board of Potable Water and Sewage of Mazatlán, JUMAPAM, is already preparing the Urías I and II plants, to replace the functions carried out by «El Crestón».

The “El Crestón” treatment plant has been operating for about 39 years, it is called that because it is located on the slopes of the hill of the same name, where El Faro is located, considered one of the highest in the world.

During that time, Mazatlans and tourists have complained about the strong odors that emanate from the place, so in 2017 it was announced that it would be relocated to the outskirts of the city.
