How is the El Toreo collector project going? this is what we know


MAZATLAN. – Do you remember the El Toreo collector project? Yes, the one that aims to end the flood problem in the area, because according to Tonatiuh Guerra Martínez, director of Social Welfare, the executive project is ready and in the hands of the National Water Commission (CONAGUA).

The project had a cost of approximately 2 million pesos, and it was in charge of two hydrologists, who studied the water, its occurrence, distribution, circulation and physical properties, this in order to create a good strategic plan.

The municipal official indicated that now that the plans have been completed and delivered to CONAGUA, it will be the federal agency, in conjunction with the state government, who decide when the work begins.

Ideally, work should begin between January and February 2023 to start working before the rainy season in Sinaloa.

“The project is here, it is a work that the state government and CONAGUA have to do, we have already put it in since October, it is only a matter of them setting a date, we have already delivered the complete project.”

What is planned to be built is a collector to be able to transfer the water that accumulates in that area to the “Tiros Cuate” stream, located a kilometer and a half from that area; this would mean that no more water would accumulate in the area. A problem that the residents of that neighborhood have had for more than 30 years.

The estimated investment is 100 million pesos, resources that would be owned by CONAGUA. In time it is estimated that the works will last approximately 4 months.

The work as such was announced by former mayor Luis Guillermo Benítez Torres in mid-2021 and the goal was to have it ready in 2022.
