The leak originated in the hydraulic network that supplies the Izcalli tank, through which the colonies surrounding the municipal capital bathe.

The Ecatepec government, in coordination with personnel from the municipal Water, Sewerage and Sanitation Services Agency (Sapase), carried out the repair of the main hydraulic network that supplies the colonies of the municipal capital, which runs along Revolución Avenue in the San Cristóbal neighborhood.

The director of Sapase, Eli Benjamín Hernández Rodríguez, reported that a fracture in the hydraulic network caused a collapse of the asphalt pavement which, together with the rains that have been recorded in the territory, caused the formation of a large hole that was hindering vehicular traffic in the area.

He reported that in order to prevent accidents and resume the supply of water to the affected communities, Sapase personnel carried out the work to replace the affected material, which consisted of manufacturing the damaged part that was replaced, and then filling the hole and carrying out the relevant patching.

Jorge Padilla Morones, head of the Sapase drinking water department, explained that the leak originated in the hydraulic network that supplies the Izcalli tank, through which the colonies surrounding the municipal capital bathe, so after carrying out the repair, water was injected back into the pipe to provide the usual supply of drinking water.

He said: “This is a leak in the line that goes to the headwaters and that enables us to access the upper part of the Izcalli tank. As a first step, we had to collect the necessary materials for its repair and then we had to order the manufacture of some special parts to be able to repair the leak and be able to provide continuity, since we are talking about a part that is more than fifteen years old.”

So far this year, the Sapase agency has repaired more than two thousand water leaks reported in different parts of the municipality.
