Important notice: Sunday no water in various areas of the island

waterWILLEMSTAD - Coming Sunday and Sunday, November 16th, various areas on the island will be without water for an about 7 hours or even longer. This is according to a statement by the utility company Aqualectra.

This measure has to do with the expansion of the water transport network between the plant at Santa Barbara and the Tank at Trai Seru.

The following areas will be without  water from 9 am till 4 pm: Biesheuvel, Cas Cora, Damacor, Emancipatie Boulevard, Emmastad, Francia, Groot Kwartier, Industrial zone Brievengat, Matancia, Rancho (partly), Rio Canario, Schelpwijk, Schottegatweg north, Soledad and Trai Seru.

Aqualactra has been expanding its water production at the Santa Barbara plant. The idea is to expand the production to 7,000 cubes per day. Several water pipes have been installed between Sein Post and Cas Coraweg as part of this endeavor. Other water pipes have been replaced.

Aqualectra does not discard the possibility of cutting off the water supply for longer than 7 hours. This is why the utility company requests all those who live in these areas to make the necessary preparations.

Aqualectra’s communication department can be reached at 0800-0135 for more information.
