24-hour water supply imminent for Diamond – GWI Head – Guyana Times
After months of work, the new well at Diamond on the East Bank of Demerara (EBD) is now back in operation, and according to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Guyana Water Incorporated (GWI), Shaik Baksh, the community will soon be benefitting from 24-hour water supply.
“We have plans right now [to return water supply to 24 hours in Diamond]. We have another well that is being completed at Covent Garden; it should be finished this month and then the pressure will be 24 hours,” the CEO stated.
“So, 24-hour service is imminent,” the GWI Head assured.
In Covent Garden, drilling for a new well is currently in progress and is expected to be completed later this month. Additionally, work is scheduled for August to upgrade the treatment plant with two more filters, increasing its capacity to produce treated water.
