The wastewater treatment plant will have a capacity to treat 2.5m3/s in a first phase, and will be built under a public services provision contract, whereby the municipal government pays the awardee a fixed price for wastewater treatment.

The plant is scheduled to start operations in 2012, according to information published on the Hermosillo government website.
