Reverse osmosis plant experiencing ‘reduced production’

The Antigua Public Utilities Authority (APUA) has begun discussions on resolving reduced production at a reverse osmosis plant here.

 The problems at that plant have resulted in poor water delivery to some communities on the island.

Sharifa George, APUA Public Relations Coordinator, told Observer media yesterday that the authority is working on reducing the impact on customers.

“The [issue with the] tanks at water production have not been resolved. However, we are working on a way to mitigate the impact that customers are currently experiencing, especially the central to eastern portions of the island,” she said.

George said that the problem is that the reverse osmosis plant that supplies water to the eastern portion of the island has been experiencing “reduced production.”

Although she was unable to comment on what options or steps were being taken to resolve the issue, she said that she expects that at the end of next week a decision would be made on how best to move forward.

“[Next week] we should be able to provide further information on the way forward,” she said.
