The demand for water from the reverse osmosis plant at Beausejour has been overwhelming.
That’s the view expressed by its operations manager, Dane Lewis. Lewis said that there is a long daily queue of trucks filling up for homes, institutions and business entities. He adds that the heavy demand is a reflection of the high quality of the water and the harshness of the dry season, He further pointed out that as the operation progresses the quality and texture of the water from the pump will continue to improve.
The heavy demand he added has been contributing to his having to work longer hours than normal.
“Sometimes I finish work after 7 pm just because of the steady flow of water trucks” said Lewis as he was filling up one of the trucks.
Christopher Stanisclaus and Augustine John are two truck drivers who are in high praise for the water. They stated that there is increasing demand as word spreads of the nature of the commodity. They added that it’s excellent for every available purpose including, washing, drinking and cooking. The water quality they added is far superior what is drawn from the borehole.
The plant is one of two on the sister isles with the other stationed on Petite Martinique. They were installed through the funding of the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre with support from NAWASA, Grenlec and the Government of Grenada.
