This challenge is inherent in the seasonal, annual drought conditions that result in demand exceeding the supply capacity and leading to the Authority having to institute proactive measures like valve regulations to address the threat; while working toward long-term solutions.
The Authority has a stringent water quality monitoring programme in place at our treatment facilities to ensure that the available treated water supply is within stipulated quality standards. Our daily monitoring, confirms that our treatment methods have not been compromised in any way.
The Authority monitors production from each source daily and assesses all systems to ensure maximum efficiency of the valve regulation schedules currently in place and in extreme cases, water will be trucked to affected areas, when necessary.
The one hundred and twenty-five million dollars ($125,000,000.00 XCD) G-Crews project, which is currently being rolled out, will bring systemic climate change resilience in Grenada’s water sector. The project, which addresses resilience at various levels, including water governance, household and business usage, as well as water supply systems, will augment the Authority’s supply, when completed.
NAWASA reminds consumers that with a limited supply, there is need for responsible usage, while continuing to practice good water management habits and ensuring adequate storage at all times.
