$1.6M water supply project to be commissioned at Campbell

The Government of Dominica in collaboration with Dominica Water and Sewerage Company will today officially commence the commissioning of the Campbell Water Supply today.

The original Campbell water system was first developed in 1978.

The intake was built on the Deux Saison River, a relatively small river. Lack of capacity at the intake resulted in the frequent shortage of water for residents of the community.

In order to alleviate the water shortage situation and to improve the lives of the people of Campbell, the Government of Dominica approved funding for the upgrade of the water system- one of the six priority projects approved for funding by the Government.

The new water system includes the construction of a 30,000 imperial gallons storage tank, a pump house and sump at Mahaut storage tank site.

The project was funded by the Government of Dominica at a cost of $1.6 million. Works commenced in January 2010 and completed in July 2010.

    Hugo…You sound like a typical “roseau man”, you get your mail at your doorstep while country people have to walk for miles to the nearest post office, you have an organized water and sewerage system that takes your crap when you flush your toilet, and your cry down country people even if thats is probably, rightfully where you came from to begin with…. Give country people a break, they are the ones producing to keep the country going. It is their taxes that pay your postman who delivers your mail do your doorstep while they walk to the post office to pick up their own.
