Diagnosis Study of the Higueras River. Huánuco – Perú

Since 2019, in Huánuco, Saving Rivers and Lakes has been dedicated to the goal of restoring the Higueras River, which has faced significant pollution and degradation.  Our studies have revealed significant pollution from garbage and faecal matter, impacting water quality and public health.

The studies have identified critical sectors, after evaluating hydrological and hydraulic infrastructure conditions. The results of monitoring water quality, shows high levels of nitrogen, phosphorus, and heavy metals, more vulnerable to the effects of pollution, drought, and disease. Therefore, our ongoing efforts include implementing proposals of waste treatment, reforestation, and community education to promote sustainable practices and improve river health.
