Plan created by the entity looks into preventive and contingency actions
Created to repair, restore and reconstruct the damages caused by the Fundão dam collapse, the Renova Foundation continues taking measures to avoid and mitigate any impacts during the upcoming rainy season. Therefore, over the last few months, we have developed a plan focused on preventive and contingency actions.
WHAT IS BEING DONE IN COLATINA
Improvements to the Water Treatment Plants (ETAs)
Improvements to the infrastructures for optimizing the Water Treatment Plants (ETAs).
Alternative water withdrawal
New alternatives for water withdrawal to ensure the supply to Colatina: there are two new water pipelines being constructed and two existing artisanal wells are being revitalized completely.
Continuous sample taking
Samples are being collected regularly along the Doce River in order to monitor if the water is suitable and within the standards established by the relevant bodies. The monitoring of the turbidity also takes place daily along the river.
Follow-ups, tests and reports about the water quality are performed daily at the Colatina ETAs.
Colatina will have a Command Center, with a specialized team and direct communication with Civil Defense, the environmental organizations and the other relevant bodies, ensuring quick decision making about adversities related to the rainy season and speeding up the communication process with the society.
