Communities here on Nevis, are set to benefit from a well as the Nevis Water Department is currently undertaking work to provide Nevis with another source that will see the water supply on the island increase.
This Well will see an increase in water supply to the Charlestown area.
The Department is currently undertaking testing at a Well in Hamilton that was discovered some twelve years ago.
Project Manager, Mr. Floyd Robinson, explained the issue with the well and the ongoing work.
The project manager explained that the work is moving along smoothly with some new installments being made at that Well.
Mr. Floyd Robinson.
This Well, when it comes on stream, will see the Charlestown area with its own supply instead of taking water from the Morning Star area which will also mean more water for that region.
The Well will provide some 280 gallons of water per minute to Nevis.
