Objectives
The goal of the WOP has been to improve water quality to avoid further crisis by enhancing operational and technical capacity.

The WOP agreement that was signed outlines a number of objectives to achieve operational and technical efficiency but includes a broad range of social goals as well:

a) Exchange knowledge, information and conduct visits in the areas of metering in order to strengthen and compare work processes in both enterprises;
b) Technological development, training in and implementation of new technologies in the areas of water and sewerage treatment;
c) Send and/or exchange professionals and technical specialist in processes related to metering, production, distribution and management of water and sanitation services;
d) Transfer technology in order to improve and modernize service infrastructure;
e) Share information, build the capacity of workers, users and social organizations;
f) Exchange knowledge, conduct technical studies and make proposals to improve the enterprises in general (technical, operational capacity and administration);
g) Identify unmet needs in access to drinking water and sanitation;
h) Promote access to drinking water as a fundamental human right.

WOPS ACTIVITIES

What types of activities were carried out to help develop operator capacity?
  • On the job training
  • Site visits

Describe WOPs activities
in June 2013, a site visit was financed by OSE for three of its engineers to see DMAE’s installations in Porto Alegre to learn about an oxidation technology for drinking water treatment. As a direct result of the exchange, OSE is building a new treatment plant in Aguas Corrientes.
