“Basseterre, St. Kitts, October 25, 2019 (OBSERVER)
The Nevis Island Administration (NIA) is investing in a water treatment system which will generate an additional half a million gallons of water per day when it’s installed to treat water at a well in Hamilton, Mr. Floyd Robinson, Manager of the recently established Water Resource Management Department in the Ministry of Communications, told the Department of Information.
“In 2008 we had three wells that were dug in addition to the maybe 18 wells that we had prior but these three main wells were dug by BEAD [Bedrock Exploration and Development Technologies]…but one of those three wells had high levels of iron and manganese and so we were unable to use it. The levels of iron and manganese were way above the World Health Organisation’s standards for water consumption,” he said.“Currently, the government is engaged in getting a filtration system from AdEdge [Water Technologies], a company in the United States, to be installed.
