Canal Watershed

Panama's water management project is one of the largest in the world. Taking advantage of its geographical and the appropriate use of its water, Panama provides a unique service to world commerce by way of its Canal.

The canal watershed maintains the reserve of this valuable natural resource. As well as being the principal source of water required for vessel transits, the canal watershed provides 95% of the drinking water for the inhabitants of the cities of Colon, Panama, San Miguelito and in the near future, Chorrera.
