A new irrigation canal in the north, 34 kilometers long, will artificially irrigate some 8,600 hectares in the cantons of Cañas and Abangares allowing in order to promotoe the revival of production in this area and diversification. $15 million will be invested in the project and work is expected to start next March.
In Costa Rica the paperwork needed for an industrial company to be able to use its own water well requires activities to be undertaken in three institutions and which take over a year.
The article in Elfinancierocr.com reviews the different steps in the process which involves repeat submissions to the Acueductos y Alcantarillados department (AyA), the Dirección de Aguas del Ministerio de Ambiente (Minae), and the Servicio Nacional de Aguas Subterráneas, Riego y Avenamiento (Senara).
The plan is to invest $100 million in a large reservoir that would supply water to more than 350 thousand people.
The project would be located "in about 21 farms that are currently devoted to livestock, as the land is not very fertile for agriculture, by contrast, they are very calcígenos and have a block of stone under the surface which would facilitate water not leaking away", reported Prensalibre.cr.
The project already has a feasibility study, plans, preliminary design and studies of land tenure for the provision of drinking water to several counties in Guanacaste, Costa Rica.
The plan by the National Groundwater, Irrigation and Drainage Services (Senara) would use 800,000 cubic meters of water which are currently being wasted. A reservoir of 800 acres would be filled with excess water, which would be used to generate 10 megawatts of electricity, then it would be turned into drinkable water and supplied to various communities.
Costa Rica is preparing an international tender for a 34 kilometer extension of the "Canal del Sur", in Guanacaste, and 52 kilometers of secondary canals.
In approximately two months the administrative processes will be to completed allowing the National Groundwater Irrigation and Drainage Services (Senara in Spanish) to publish the tender for the redevelopment of the canal south of Arenal Tempisque Irrigation District (DRAT) which currently irrigates 27,000 hectares. The execution of the works to be tendered will add a further 8000 hectares of irrigation.
