Antigua’s Crabbs Reverse Osmosis Plant Fully Restored


Recently, the Antigua Public Utilities Authority (APUA) proudly announced the successful restoration of the Crabbs Reverse Osmosis Plant, a crucial water source serving approximately 50 percent of consumers in Antigua.

This achievement follows temporary shutdowns required for essential repairs.

According to a press statement released on Friday, units four and six underwent temporary offline status to address a vibration fault and replace a mechanical seal.

While these maintenance measures caused a temporary reduction in daily water production and distribution interruptions, all six units at the Crabbs Plant are now fully operational.

This development is set to increase daily water production to an anticipated 3.6 to 3.8 million gallons, ultimately improving the distribution schedule and benefiting communities spanning Crabbs through John Hughes, including central areas.
