The Pontal Project, located in Petrolina, Pernambuco, has been planned to promote regional development by means of irrigated agriculture, taking advantage of suitable soils present in the area. It is divided into two sectors located on the south and north banks of the Pontal creek, a tributary of the São Francisco river. TPF Engineering carried out the environmental studies in the North Sector, confirming its environmental feasibility and indicating the compensatory measures for the protection of the local biome, the caatinga (thorny bushlands).
