NOTICE: Temporary Water Suppression


The Antigua Public Utilities Authority (APUA) Water Business Unit advises customers in the southern section of the island that due to continuous rough sea conditions, water production at the Ffryes Reverse Osmosis Plant has been reduced.

Customers in elevated areas in Bolans through to Old Road will continue to experience temporary water suppression until sea conditions become conducive for increased production. This reduction in production is necessary to protect the equipment at the plant.

The APUA Water Business Unit expressed apologizes for the inconvenience caused to the affected customers as it continues to closely monitor sea conditions.

  1. I can appreciate that when the equipment is faced to certain conditions, precautionay measures should be taken….. However, for us the ley men i think it is prudent that APUA should briefly explain to the public what damages can be done and how the damages will be done, should anything happen. Too many times APUA indicates what causes a problem eg rat, now rough seas but they never explain how the problem is caused….

  2. Probably due to sea turbidity, particulate matter (sand, seaweed anything that is at the bottom of the sea) gets disrupted when there is rough seas. Pumps can be damaged or worse input tubes can become clogged.
