 massive irrigation

Next year, the Olmos Irrigation Project will start pumping billions of gallons of water onto a nearby 170-square-mile patch of desert in the Olmos Valley near the Pacific coast. The $500 million project is the most ambitious yet in a handful of massive irrigation works that are turning large swaths of Peru’s historically parched coast into profitable agricultural fields. Odebrecht Construction drilled a 12-mile tunnel through the Andes to pull water from where it has always been abundant – the Amazon watershed to the east – to the arid west coast of Peru that is home to two-thirds of the population and 80 per cent of economic activity but only 2 per cent of its freshwater.
