Included in the complementary works related to the PISF - Project for the Integration of the São Francisco River and the Northern and Northeastern Water Basins, the Agreste Water Main is one of the largest water supplies in the country, with estimated costs amounting to 2 billion reais.

TPF ENGENHARIA (former Projetec) was in charge of the plan that would ensure the supply of treated water to some 2 million people in the Agreste of Pernambuco. The water is to be drawn into the Ipojuca Reservoir, the starting point of a complex piping system extending for over 1,300 km, with pipe diameters varying from 1,800 mm to 100 mm and 17 water elevating stations, benefiting 80 urban districts and some rural communities.
