[Press Release] The Water and Sewerage Company Inc is pleased to announce that residents of Babonneau Proper, Cabishe and Hill Twenty communities who had been experiencing frequent water supply interruptions can expect an improvement when upgrades on the Hill Twenty Treatment plant are completed.
The primary objective of this project is to increase the supply of water to customers to a more consistent and reliable supply
The line servicing residents in Fond Cannie will now be connected to the La Croix pumping line and will supply the community through gravity
The upgrade also includes the installation of a new pumping station at the Hill Twenty Plant to increase pumping capacity to the Paix Bouche tank.
The first phase of works which began in June 2017 included the installation of a ten inch main that replaced the 6 inch pumping main from the Hill Twenty Treatment Plant to the La Croix water storage tank. The upgrade has increased capacity and was the first step in satisfying the demand for water in areas which had previously been deprived.
The second phase of the works will include the installation of an additional electrical pump at the Hill Twenty Treatment Plant that will further increase the water volumes to the various communities.
This phase is nearing completion and is expected to be operational shortly. Upon completion, all areas to the east of the Hill 20 treatment plant will begin to experience an improvement in the water supply.
