Resources for the "Improvement and application of water and sewage for the city of Granada” will be provided by the German government, as was confirmed by the German Embassador in Nicaragua, Betina Kern.

Germany is fourth in the list of donor countries to Nicaragua, having contributed $500 million since 1990. Currently, the German government is making projects for sustainable development and environmental care a priority.

José Adán Silva, in his article in Elnuevodiario.com.ni, indicated the current state of Lake Cocibolca (Lake Nicaragua): "Although the lake water is not entirely contaminated like in lake Xolotlán, there is a risk of "eutrophication", or nutrient enrichment in the water caused by an increase of plants and other organisms that rot once they die and consume the oxygen in the water, causing odor and loss of the ecosystem, according to studies by the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources, MARENA."
