In this sense, “we are going to bet on dividing it into two sectors, in addition to the
placement of a remote management team, with 10 repeaters that will distribute the signal along the route of the avenue, and with 11 programmers for the automation of the system”, he indicated. It will also be equipped with 15 hydrants and almost 4,000 meters of drip pipe.
