Construction is supposed to start in December 2018.


Operational in February 2020.

Hmm...  I just did a search and the newspaper, El Imparcial, published an article on May 26th that said that the CEA says that construction was set to begin this past July or August and begin operations before the end of 2019.

The governor has finally announced the start of construction on the desalination plant in Empalme.

Took a walk there last week (12/12/18) and spoke with a guy working on a drilling rig. He said that they are drilling 8 holes 100 meters deep for the plant coming later. Didn't catch when that would be happening.

The good news from that article is that the governor is already making arrangements for a second stage. It was less than a month ago that she announced that the construction would be starting soon on this plant.

Did anyone physically attend the CEA meeting that was held at Charlies Rock a few years back? ( I thought it was 2016) Did I hear correctly that there was a whole lot of absolute TRUST ME promises made regarding the improvements to the infrastructure of San Carlos? Especially about the water and garbage?
I wasn't there, but I did read an interesting article in the
" SanCarlosTV.com "

Some different views and thoughts on there. Not sure if the person that was writing is still writing. I do like the fact that they explain stories that don't really make it to the masses of people who live in San Carlos. Like any news media, were only told what they want us to know. Why all the secrecy?
I'm trying to contact them now.

I'm asking on here because there are some very well informed individuals and we are talking about the deteriorating water infrastructure all over San Carlos.

I hope the power grid isn't next from what I'm gathering.

Americans, Canadians, Snow Birds as well the winter tourist are the backbone to San Carlos existence. Our little town rolls up in the summer months.
Any help would be appreciated :O)



Can someone elaborate on what has ACTUALLY BEEN ACCOMPLISHED SINCE THEN?

Things have changed in SC. Summer weekends are packed now. The shift is to Mexican tourism. If the local government cares about gringo snowbirds anymore it is not evident. The desal plant will not have any impact to SC water, it is for Guaymas/Empalme. There have been comments about new wells and so on but I do not know if they are true. For now, the answer is more storage.

Thank You Richard :O) Yes, it's apparent the town / and individual homeowners should install larger tanks for storage capacity. I wasn't aware that the new Desal Plant would not have any real impact on SC. Hard to keep up! So, in a nutshell, we're still in the same boat. Waiting for new wells and new underground pipes to transport water from house to house, business, to business. I've been trying to follow the writings and the forms for a couple years now, it seems the Pumps and underground pipes are just as big of a problem? If we get new wells, the water still needs to be pumped and travel through efficient pipes. Unless they are replaced we still have worn out pumps and old worn out pipes. Just so frustrating. Thanks for the response :O)

I somehow got over getting frustrated with the way things work. It just makes life easier to figure out workarounds and enjoy the scenery.

An article in the Hermosillo paper...
Basically it states they have started testing the site where the beach wells will go. They have a target of the plant producing water by late 2019 or into 2020. Important to note that this water will be added to the existing Empalme/Guaymas system (which does not go to San Carlos)

https://www.elimparcial.com/Sonora/2019/01/25/1404193-Analizan-pozos-playeros-para-iniciar-construccion-de-desaladora-en-Empalme.html

Of interest to San Carlos is a statement at the end...

In San Carlos Nuevo Guaymas, he said, it is planned to invest 50 million pesos more to add three more distribution wells, as well as the construction of a tank in Ranchitos with which they will supply water to the inhabitants of the tourist destination.

The Ranchitos tank is already there. It seems rather small to service the Ranchitos, but there appears to be a lot more space on that pad up there, for more tanks, should they choose to install them.


A sub-contractor for CEA has also installed new water lines on many (but not all) of the north-south running Ranchitos streets (the lettered and numbered "calles"). 


They did not install one on our calle (C), but our water remains very reliable. I dont know if that is an emergency tank or what. I do see new leaks along the new lines, that were never there before. Especially J.

I think any storage in the system is a good thing. Hopefully it will smooth out the times when there is at least a little water flowing. I am full and have had no water issues for a while. It would be nice to know when new wells come on line. The leaks are disturbing, hope they fix them.
