It involves the construction of an irrigation network of pipes and other hydraulic works serving 15,000 hectares through 15 municipalities, and the operation and maintenance of the infrastructure for a total contractual length of 30 years. Already constructed and under operation there are already 6,366 hectares of pressure irrigation and 481.47 hectares of gravity irrigation.
