CABINET NOTES: The Cabinet invited the General Manager of APUA, the Water Manager and the Supervisor Responsible for the many valves that determine water flow following production at the many reverse osmosis plants. CLICK HERE TO JOIN OUR WHATSAPP GROUP.

The APUA Team reported that the drought is getting worse while the demand for water has increased; the APUA is also increasing its output by adding new membranes and new filters to unit number 8 at Crabbes Peninsular.

The output at Crabbes has increased to 3.7 million gallons daily and when the other unit comes on stream from the 15th of June, Crabbes will produce 4 million gallons daily.

Demand for water at this time exceeds 8 million gallons daily; APUA is currently producing 6.5 million gallons at this time.

The deficit is to be cured by bringing online the new Fort James Plant that will be producing 500,000 gallons in the first phase; the Bethesda plant which will be producing 3 million gallons when it is constructed; and, by regular maintenance of the Barnacle Point plant and the Camp Blizzard plant.

The Cabinet decided that until there is sufficient water being produced that it will summon the APUA Water Manager to its meeting every week.

  1. Today is Thursday the 9th of June 2022.

    Please do not forget what was promised by Gaston Browne and the ABLP government that a new island wide new and functional WATER SYSTEM 💧💧💧would be put in place by the 30th of September 2022.

    There is now ONLY 113 days left for implementation by this administration and APUA.

    NOT LONG TO GO NOW BOSS MAN 🥸, AND REMEMBER ANTIGUANS STILL LOOKING OUT … 👀

  2. By the time all the new new investments, new hotels, new homes come into being the September remember will be long outdated and the crisis will worsen.

    No long term plan for sustainable growth exist, making it up as you go along means scarce resources will be used to out fires. This is not a sensible approach to manage anything.

  3. They don’t care to fix the issue because Water Trucks making shit loads of money and guess who owns most of the water trucks in Antigua with people fronting for them?? 🤐

  4. A suggestion would be to do a reshuffle of APUA or even privatize it because it would appear that APUA is somewhat lacking in efficiency. Drought conditions are not new to Antigua and should always be prioritized. Money always seems to be an issue and word on the street says that apparent theft in the form of ridiculous overpriced rentals (Cassada Gardens looks like a dump) paying huge commissions, over staffing, overpriced contracts and not least of all the exorbitant costs of supplying free utilities to govt. and cronies (the huge bill for which is charged to the public)…all of which is a huge drain on APUA and their ability to supply and maintain, vital to survival, utilities.
    Questionably qualified persons past retirement home age with personal agendas should not be running any vital company far less APUA! Antigua people need to wake up and demand better from those in leadership positions.

  5. KEEP THE COUNTDOWN GOING BRIXTONIAN
    There is now ONLY 113 days left for implementation by this administration and APUA of there latest promise (lie) But don’t forget about all the other lies they are telling you or are about to tell you, like…..

    THE BIG MONKEY POX LIE
