(Eleuthera, Bahamas) – Work to install a new high pressure pump at the Central Eleuthera Reverse Osmosis Plant, which began on Tuesday, July 12th, 2016 has now been completed, said Water and Sewerage Corporation Island Manager, Mr. Anthony Bostwick. A team from General Electric (GE) was on island to remove a damaged high pressure pump and to install a new one, which was estimated to result in customers from Gregory Town to Windermere Island experiencing low to no pressure for two to three days. With the announced restoration of the RO Plant shortly before 3:30pm on Wednesday, July 13th, and distribution having started at about 4:30pm, customers were said to be able to expect a return of water pressure within a ten hour period, depending on their location.
