    The plant, with the capacity to process 4,800 cubic meters of wastewater per day (m3 / d), in addition to be one of the largest in the country among those installed in a similar sun and beach destination, is the fifth existing in Jardines del Rey and with it the network of this type of facilities in that emporium is completed, Guillermo Pérez Quiala, director of the Ciego de Ávila Hydraulic Projects Company, said.
