Description

The project comprises full concession of Water Supply and Sewage services in the 22 municipalities of the state of Acre, serving  629 thousand people, which corresponds to 100% of the urban population.

The state of Acre does not have a Metropolitan Region and was thus not divided into blocks. The city with the largest population is Rio Branco, the state capital, followed by Cruzeiro do Sul.

DEPASA, the state agency that currently provides the services, will remain responsible for the services to be provided to rural areas with funding coming from the fund to be created with 1% of the concessionaire's revenue.

The goals of universal coverage, to be met by the private operator, are:

- Water: from 62% to 99% of the population between the fifth and seventh years, depending on the municipality.

- Sewage: from 18% to 90% of the population between the tenth and the fifteenth year, depending on the municipality.
