President announces desalination plant for Baja California Sur

Los Cabos, Baja California Sur — The president of Mexico says that the government will install a desalination plant in Baja California Sur along with urban infrastructure.

The announcement was made by Andrés Manuel López Obrador after a tour of the region Sunday. He has said that the government will construct the plant in Los Cabos with an investment of one billion peso and will also include urban infrastructure and improvement of houses to rescue the marginalized colonies.

López Obrador explained that the Programa de Mejoramiento Urbano Mi México Late, which seeks to rescue the colonies and urban areas of 15 cities in tourist destinations such as Los Cabos, Acapulco, Vallarta, and Bahía de Banderas, will eliminate contrasts with hotel zones and marginalize colonies without basic services.

He added that an investment of around 600 million peso will be earmarked for the housing project at Los Cabos.

Accompanied by Governor Carlos Mendoza Davis, the president also said that the Los Cardones mine project located between La Paz and Los Cabos, which would affect the Sierra La Laguna Biosphere Reserve, has been canceled.
