The state government of Sao Paulo, Brazil, will pay sewer connection for families with income of up to three minimum wages. It is estimated that 192 000 connections will be paid, benefiting about 800 000 people. Will be invested R $ 349.5 million over eight years.
The program will pay for the works within the property, such as labor and material, to make the connection.The goal is to encourage low-income families to connect their homes to the sewer system, because when there is no domestic connection to sewage they pour in fresh water bodies causing damage to the environment and health of the population.
The program is coordinated by the Secretary of Sanitation and Water Resources of the State, Edson Giriboni.
