A $4.5-million storage tank that is expected to significantly improve the water supply to the city of Roseau and environs is to be commissioned today.
The 500,000 gallon tank, situated at Morne Bruce, was funded by the government of Dominica and will also provide water for the Windsor Park Stadium and supply the sale of bulk water to cruise ships.
The contractor, ACE Engineering, has been working on the project for the past year.
Public Relations Officer of DOWASCO, Edward Registe, has described the project as significant to the residents of the capital, Roseau.
“We’re happy that we can commission the tank today and we look forward to a more dedicated supply of water to the city and we also look forward to fewer interruptions in supply to the people of Kings Hill, Morne Bruce and so on,” Registe told Dominica News Online.
The Commissioning of the storage tank will take place later today at Morne Bruce.
