On 17 August 2016, Seville’s 100% publicly-owned water utility Empresa Metropolitana de Abastecimiento y Saneamiento de Aguas de Sevilla, S.A. (EMASESA) confirmed its summer construction schedule for projects totaling €22 million. These projects target several areas of central Seville that include sewage collection network build-out as well as supply network rehabilitation.

The investment total represents a major new phase of network improvement for EMASESA as part of its 2015-2019 capital improvement plan totaling €181 million. EMASESA’s five-year CAPEX plan includes an increased focus on urban resilience through flood management.
