UPDATED PRESS RELEASE
RESTORATION OF WATER SUPPLIES IN CENTRAL ELEUTHERA FOLLOWING MALFUNCTION AT WSC REVERSE OSMOSIS PLANT
The Water and Sewerage Corporation wishes to report that water production commenced late yesterday evening at its Central Eleuthera Reverse Osmosis Water Plant located at the Naval Base Eleuthera. All necessary inspections and checks were completed and water is now being circulated throughout the distribution system.
This facility supplies water in Central Eleuthera from Gregory Town in the north to Savannah Sound in the south. Customers in the affected areas may continue to experience reduced service levels for the next 24 hours, until full restoration of the distribution system pressures. The system has been monitored over the last 12 hours and full restoration is expected as projected.
Besides the immediate restoration efforts, WSC has also initiated both medium and long term plans for improving water quality, supply and storage on the entire island of Eleuthera. This includes the recently announced $41 Mn. project partially funded by the Caribbean Development Bank, and the Bahamas Government, and other initiatives such as desalinated water supply for the north, and increased storage and production capacity to mitigate the effects of supply failures such as this one in Central Eleuthera.
The Corporation sincerely apologizes for the extended supply interruption and will continue to keep you updated. Please follow our website www.wsc.com.bs, or our Facebook Page regarding corrective works and restoration of supply. Customers are also invited to email their concerns and/or feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org or call our toll free number at (242) 300 0150.
