Efforts are underway by the Dominica Water and Sewage Company (DOWASCO) to improve the water supply in Delices, Warner and Campbell.
Customer Service and Human Resource Manager at DOWASCO, Gwennie Dickson said the three projects which are being funded by the Government of Dominica are expected to be completed in December of this year.
“We have 45% of works completed. With the Warner supply project, work has commenced and its 85% completed to date and we are hoping to have it completed by August. The Warner project is costing $3.5 Million while the Delices project will cost $2.3 Million and the Campbell Water Supply project costing $1.6 Million,” she said.
She says upon completion of the project in these areas, residence can expect a much more improved water supply.
“We expected the service to be improved because we will be construction additional storage there. In Campbell we are setting up a 13, 000 gallon storage tank and we will be pumping into that tank from Mahaut. For Delices, the current system works on ram-pump but the improved water supply will be working on electric pumps. For Warner we will be constructing two storage tanks-a 54,000 gallon storage tank for the lower area and a 30,000 gallon tank for the upper area,” she explained.
