Canal de Isabel II will supply bottled water for healthcare workers during the covid-19 emergency
Last week, Canal began preparing its bottling plant and necessary personnel in order to meet this need.
- Canal has a plant with an average daily production capacity of 4,500 half-litre bottles.
- The public company of the Autonomous Community of Madrid will coordinate distribution with the Regional Ministry of Health.
Beginning tomorrow, Canal de Isabel II will supply half-litre water bottles to the Regional Ministry of Health of the Autonomous Community of Madrid for their distribution to healthcare personnel who are working during the coronavirus (COVID-19) health emergency.
In order to service the need raised by the regional Government, last week Canal de Isabel II began the necessary work for producing continuously, and as soon as possible, the largest number of bottles in the public company’s bottling plant in Colmenar Viejo.
Although these facilities normally bottle 5-litre carafes that are supplied to the people of Madrid in the event of pipe ruptures and breakdowns resulting in a cut in supply, they can also bottle in 0.5-litre containers. In this case, the average daily production reaches 4,500 units.
Once quality control has been verified, as required by the regulations on bottled water, these half-litre bottles of water from Canal de Isabel II are made available to the Regional Ministry of Health for their distribution in medical facilities.
In addition to this service, Canal is guaranteeing the supply and sanitation of water in the region with more than 1,000 professionals working in shifts in the company’s different integrated water cycle management facilities.
