The project measures included an increase in drinking water production (construction of a new infiltration gallery), the expansion and rehabilitation of the water supply and sewage disposal networks and sewage treatment in Pisco. The implementing agency was the municipal water utility EMAPISCO. The project was related to other water supply and sewage disposal projects in Peru that were originally supposed to be implemented in close cooperation with the TC implementing agency programme “Drinking Water and Sanitation Programme in Selected Cities” (GIZ, formerly GTZ/PROAGUA). Due to delays, however, the FC and TC interventions were not carried out within the scope of a cooperation project. A distinction must be made between main and complementary measures. The originally planned measures were largely completed before 2007. In 2007, Pisco was hit by a severe earthquake that also caused considerable damage to the infrastructure that had been built. The remaining funds from the project and SECO delegated funds were used as part of a complementary measure consistent with the original project objectives. This involved repairing some of the damage to the facilities caused by the earthquake and procuring some additional equipment.
