While I, and many other Bahamians, mourn the results of the Referendum we must now turn to our attention to problems that can be fixed.
In recent weeks residents in Marsh Harbour have complained about poor water pressure and water outages. Barrington Murphy, manager of the local Water & Sewerage Corporation (WSC) office, spoke to ‘The Abaconian’ to address these concerns.
Following a break-in at Central Abaco Primary School (CAPS) last year, the school sought assistance from corporate sponsors to replace their stolen computers.
The Water and Sewerage Corporation, Abaco, is continuing the process of its upgrades to the system. Barrington Murphy, Area Manager for Abaco and the Cays, explained what these upgrades are going to mean to the people of Abaco. Mr. Murphy began by stating the fact that every summer the corporation is challenged in its production capabilities owing to greater demand for water due to the hotter weather and children being home from school. Despite these challenges, he stated that the Corporation is already providing a high standard of service and is working to improve even more. It is presently running at an 80% efficiency rating and that rating should soon be up to 95%.
Customers of the Water and Sewerage Corporation (WSC) in Abaco can expect better water pressure within a week’s time as the corporation upgrades their pumps to meet an increase in demand.
Just days after the portion of Don MacKay Blvd from BTC’s Office to Abaco Hardware was finally paved, bringing relief to motorists and businesses alike, Water and Sewerage Corporation (WSC) was seen digging a trench in the road on the north-bound lane.
