Mangrove Cay Water Supply Update

90

The Corporation wishes to update customers and residents on its plans for water mains renewals and extensions for Mangrove Cay, Andros in the coming months. The Hon. Alfred Sears, KC, MP, Minister of Works and Utilities has given the Governmental approval for the Corporation to urgently proceed to address the critical water supply challenges experienced by customers.

Robert Deal, Acting General Manager said that the Corporation has substantially completed the Tender Drawings for the replacement of all of the existing grey PVC 4-inch mains that are the source of frequent water leaks which result in low pressure and/or no water supply. This also include extending new water mains to parts of the community without a piped water supply. A technical team will visit Mangrove Cay this week to complete a final survey to ensure the scope of works capture all homes and businesses. Upon completion of the Tender process
anticipated by December 2022, and a Contract Award is made, a Community Meeting will be scheduled to update customers and all residents of the community as to the specific timelines for the project.

In the interim, the Corporation’s team in Mangrove Cay will continue their best efforts to promptly repair all leaks and to continue with pressure management efforts to prevent any new leaks. Residents are asked to promptly report any leaks they may observe, no matter how small.

The Corporation apologies to its valued customers in Mangrove Cay for any inconvenience caused and appreciate their continued patience as it prepares to carry out these planned improvement works.
