The Superintendencia Nacional de servicios de Saneamiento (Sunass) presented the web-based system for the collection of information from the Technical Areas Municipal (ATM), which will allow to know the quality of sanitation services provided by the service providers in rural and small towns.

The web system designed by Sunass provides information from ATM and community organizations related to the sanitation service, including the administrative boards of Sanitation Services and Municipal management units in the 24 regions of the country.

Sunass argued that in this way, data are recorded from the organization of the rural sanitation service provider, area of jurisdiction, gender quota, systems used for the quality of Service, actions related to the conservation of water sources, variation in the family quota, among others.

Relevant information will also be available, such as the percentage of municipalities with institutionalized ATM and rural providers providing services through a community organization. In addition, the number of rural providers that self-finance the operation and maintenance of their services, and how many have water systems with chlorination techniques, among others.

The reports generated in the system with information from the ATM will be sent to the Sunass on a semi-annual basis quickly and easily, and can be used by all officials, social organizations, academia and the general public interested in the management of sanitation services in rural areas. The information is posted on the website

In this sense, the executive president of the Sunass, Ivan Lucich Larrauri, said that the web system will also contribute to the better channeling and use of public resources in favor of the rural population, which has only 2.6 percent of water with adequate disinfection and to make visible the good practices of the providers.

” This tool is available to other institutions and will help articulate the efforts of the health sector, the housing sector, local governments and Sunass itself so that the rural population and small cities consume quality drinking water and so that we can reach the goal: that 75 percent of the population have water with adequate disinfection, ” Lucich said.

During the presentation of the web-based system also present was the deputy minister of Construction and Sanitation, Julius Caesar Kosaka Harima, who noted that this type of initiatives help to close the gaps and gain access to valuable information, correct and up-to-date on water and sanitation services in the rural area.

Participants included the Municipal technical areas of Juli (Puno) and San Salvador (Cusco), who shared their experience in the use of the web system and highlighted its usefulness and functionality.
