David Burch on water
House: water infrastructure upgrades
Bermuda’s water infrastructure is to be boosted, public works minister Lieutenant-Colonel David Burch told Parliament this morning.
A third extraction well at the Tynes Bay reverse osmosis plant and a new pumping station for the Cedar Park and Mary Victoria area should bring “significant financial savings”, Colonel Burch said.
Colonel Burch also announced the installation of a remote monitoring control system for the island’s central areas and the replacement of 2,000 feet of corroded iron pipes in the Fort Prospect area.
Rainfall is below normal this year, with a total of 20.82 inches by June 3, 1.43 inches below the normal average.
