Argentina’s CAP Dredges Local Chico River

Argentina’s CAP has cleansed and dredged the north stretch of the Chico River, in the nation’s Santa Cruz province, the local government said in late February. CAP dredged about 600 meters (1,970 feet) of the north section of the river, as well as a nearby treatment plant owned by state-run energy and water company Servicios Publicos Sociedad del Estado (SPSE). The government of Santa Cruz province said works aimed to expand the river’s bed, since trees have moved on the riverbank of the Chico River hindering water flow.
