(PRESS RELEASE VIA SNO) – The Water and Sewerage Company Inc Wasco regrets to inform customers in the entire Babonneau area as well as Upper Monier, Morne Citron, desrameaux, Ti Dauphin, Ravine macok, Malgretoute and Laborne, that they will experience a water interruption for two days starting Monday May 28th 2018.
The interruption is necessary in order to undertake the final phase of the water improvement project which commenced in 2017. This included the laying of a new ten inch pumping line from Hill Twenty Treatment Plant to the La Croix water tank, that will provide residents with an improved and more reliable supply of water once completed.
To complete this project it has become necessary for WASCO to temporarily shut off the Hill Twenty Treatment Plant from Monday May 28th to Tuesday May 29th 2018 to allow for the connection of the newly installed pumps and some other upgrade works at the Hill Twenty Treatment facility
Wasco therefore urges residents in Babonneau to conserve and store as much water as possible ahead of the planned outage. In addition WASCO will employ all available options including trucking water to residents at higher elevations and those who are routinely more adversely affected by prolonged interruptions.
The works on the Hill Twenty Treatment Plant are expected to be completed on Tuesday May 29th 2018. However, Wasco advises that customers at higher elevations will not receive a supply immediately after the completion of the works.
