WATER COMING: APUA reports progress at Fort James for new Reverse Osmosis Plant


APUA: Progress pics of ongoing work happening at Fort James for our new 500,000 gallons Reverse Osmosis Plant.

MEANTIME, Another government secondary school – the second in two days –

has been forced to dismiss students early due to the lack of pipe-borne water.

The Antigua Girls High School (AGHS) followed the Antigua Grammar School, which, on Wednesday morning, sent home students because of the water situation.

Today, April 28, a notice went out to AGHS parents, advising that they could pick up their children, since the school was being closed early.

A source tells our News Department that classes were cut short sometime after midday, ahead of the usual 1:30 p.m. dismissal.  However, it is expected that classes will resume on Friday, April 29, as usual.

Meanwhile, reports say the Antigua Grammar School received water on Thursday.

A Rural North parent tells our News Room that she is fed up with the Antigua Public Utilities Authority (APUA) and its water schedule.

She says the schedule put out by the Authority on April 27 – which indicated that her community would receive water from 1 to 6 p.m. – did not materialize in a timely manner.  Up until after 3 p.m., she says, there was no pipe-borne water in the area.

Yesterday, Wednesday, the APUA issued a statement admitting that its Water Distribution Schedule has been less than adequate and apologizing to customers.

  2. Remember the date citizens of Antigua 🇦🇬 on the 30th of September, the water system 💧 (as promised by Gaston ‘Gassy’ Browne and the ABLP party) will be up and running across our beautiful island.


  3. Is the cruise ship company still considering building a recreational facility at Fort James or this is another empty fake breaking? Anyway, they will have water before Antiguans.
