This pumping station will allow farmers, in particular rice producers, to facilitate watering operations and guarantee the availability of water for farmers by allowing the irrigation of 10,000 hectares in Grand Bassin, Acul Samedi, Savane Square, Malféti etc... and also allow fish farming...

The technicians are currently carrying out work to protect dike #1 and to install valves to facilitate the installation of the mini power plant and to bring water into the irrigation system...

Regarding access to drinking water for the entire population of the region, water treatment centers will be installed through the National Directorate for Drinking Water and Sanitation (DINEPA).

Officials estimate that the works are at 72% and estimate that in August they will be close to 85%
