Sewage network reaches over 110 homes in the municipality of Lagos

The operation involved an investment of almost 550 thousand euros

The sewage network will reach over 110 houses in the municipality of Lagos, after an intervention that made it possible to deactivate septic tanks that were not yet in operation due to the lack of connection of the houses to the public wastewater treatment system. 

The intervention, financed through POSEUR – Operational Program for Sustainability and Efficiency in the Use of Resources, made it possible to build 4,88 kilometers of new sewage drainage system networks and two pumping stations.

Through these interventions, it became possible to provide the wastewater sanitation service to over 110 accommodation units in the county, with 87 of these accommodations currently connected.

The operation involved an investment of almost 550 thousand euros, 250 thousand of which co-financed by the Cohesion Fund.

According to the Câmara de Lagos, the main objective of the works was the expansion of the sanitation system with a view to reducing urban pollution.

The interventions carried out also aim to «protect the environment» by guaranteeing the treatment of sewage produced by the populations.

The enlargement, which will make it possible to disable private and collective septic tanks, covers the areas of Cova da Zorra, in Odiáxere, and the Gardens of Bensafrim and Ferrel, in Espiche, with connection to the upstream system for the WWTP in Lagos.
