WATER AND SEWERAGE CORPORATION Committed to Growth, Committed to Quality



Eleuthera, Bahamas: The Water and Sewerage Corporation (WSC) wishes to update our valued customers within the Central Eleuthera zone, which includes settlements from Gregory Town in the north to Savannah Sound in the south who have been experiencing periods of low pressure and/or no water since Monday June 17.
As shared yesterday afternoon, repair works at the Naval Base Desalination Plant were completed yesterday around 2PM and desalination water production from both trains at the plant commenced. As storage levels improved, additional distribution pumps were engaged permitting us to distribute water to most customers within Central Eleuthera up to this morning. Unfortunately, the Desalination Contractor advised us that at approximately 9AM this morning they experienced a failure on their main well pump and their teams are presently on site working tirelessly to resume normal operations early this afternoon.
With the support of the Government, WSC has engaged a water barge who are presently overloading an initial 70,000 gallons of water and this barging operation will continue around the clock until the water production situation at the Naval Base has been stabilized. In tandem, WSC will continue the free tankering of water to locations at higher elevations and those at the extreme ends of our system who would have experienced extended periods of low pressure and/or no water and in parallel, our teams are also delivering free 1-gallon and 5-gallon bottles of water to senior citizens and those without access to transportation to collect such supplies.
The Water and Sewerage Corporation sincerely apologizes to our valued customers in Central Eleuthera for all inconveniences caused by this extended reduction in water supply. We are committed to providing uninterrupted potable water supply and strive to return to normal service swiftly when disruptions occur. We appreciate and thank our customers for their loyalty and patience during this challenging time. Thank you for your understanding.
