    Until we move on to constructing reservoirs fed by rivers, as against supply intakes that take water direct from the flow of the river, we will always be faced with this problem.

    Thanks for the notice, however over $10 million plus was spent on improving the water intake at Antrim valley, with all advance water filtration equipment to improve on the water final product to customers with minimal or no interruption as well as sediment free water for consumption even if it rains heavily, it is noticeable when it rains the water is apparently brown, can dowasco tell the public if this $10 million dollar system is functional or not.
    And what is plan B after the main water system is shot down leaving a high percentage of customers without water for over 15 hours or more, after all by now there should be a sub tank to pick up the strain we suppose to be a resilience nation.

      Just asking! Do you believe that the whole $10 000 000 was used for its intended purpose?

    If my husband slaps me across my face EVERYDAY and apologizes after each time. At some stage the apology becomes pointless. DOWASCO is just the same S#!7 different day….! No pun intended (if you read between the lines).
