English translation:metered, controlled, or regulated water source
Explanation:
This is about a metered (or controlled or regulated) water source, the water from which flows into a 10 cubic meter pond (reservoir) for the domestic use of the plant.

One definition of habilitado is paymaster, so I assume in this case it means metered so that the plant can be charged for its water consumption. Sondaje means probe, but here it sounds like a \"pozo\" or \"manantial\" or some source of water, given the context.

Adequate water well/ Otherwise adequate deep suction...


Explanation:
In my opinion the text given is not clear.

I think they are saying that they have an adequate ground water well suction to supply water to their 10 cubic meter tank.

"We count on an adequate ground water [supply] well, whose waters are taken into a 10 cubic meter tank for domestic use in the plant."

Regards.
