Public Utilities Minister turns sod for three new wells in Mayaro

Public Utilities Minister, Marvin Gonzales has turned the sod to start works on three new wells in Mayaro aimed at addressing the water supply challenges of the area.

WASA says the new Mayaro Wells 18, 19 and 20, when completed, are expected to bring the Mayaro Water Treatment Plant to its full production capacity of 500,000 gallons per day.

Currently, the plant is producing 220,000 gallons per day.
