The project is expected to provide water to over 3,000 residents of Babonneau, including resident of Chicken Back Street, Little America, Plateau, La Guerre and environs.
Since the launch of the project in December 2012, a number of milestones have been met. The old 10,000 gallon tank has been knocked down and the site has undergone a number of major changes in preparation for the new tank.
Trees have been cut and a new access road has been mapped out. The foundation has been reinforced and a new larger concrete base has been constructed ahead of the arrival of the new 150,000-imperial gallon tank.
According to Rotary, this project is expected to fill a critical need for water and will increase WASCO’s capacity to better satisfy its customers.
Assistance for this project has been provided by Rotary clubs in the Caribbean and across the United States.
