Sabesp’s Challenge

In order for the Cantareira System to provide adequate water to the people of São Paulo, the system needed to have the capability to move significant quantities of water uphill through the Cantareira Mountain Range until it reached the Treatment Plant at Guarau. Difficult terrain was not the only problem the system faced. Due to people’s dependence on the water the system would provide, it needed to function, virtually trouble-free and without any repairs or maintenance issues that would affect its productivity.

A worldwide search was conducted to find a company that had the expertise to design and construct such a complex system.
