APUA Says Sea Swells Affects Water Production


The Antigua and Barbuda Meteorological Services has issued a warning regarding sea swells of 10 feet that will affect Antigua and Barbuda over the next few days.

These sea conditions have the potential to damage equipment vital for water production at the northern and southern sections of the islands. The quality of sea water coming into the plants has already deteriorated tremendously.

In an effort to protect the equipment, the APUA Water Business Unit will be required to reduce water production at the Camp Blizzard Desalination Plant and Ffryes Reverse Osmosis Plant until sea conditions become more favourable.

Customers in the northern and southern sections of the island can expect an adjustment in the regularity of water distribution during that time.

The APUA Water Business Unit will continue to monitor the system closely and extends advanced thanks for the patience and understanding of its customers.
