NASSAU, BAHAMAS – The more than $4 million upgrade was possible thanks to funding from Treasure Cay residents and the government.

Water and Sewerage Corporation acting engineer Finé Austin says the system could manage over 300,000 gallons of sewage per day.

Moving forward, power outages will not impact residents’ ability to access potable water.

Hurricane Dorian completely decimated the old system back in 2019. Since then, Water and Sewerage employees had to manually pump the sewer daily, but that’s now a thing of the past.

Bron Limited was brought on as a consultant on the project. Managing Principal Kevin Sweeting explains the system got a complete overhaul.

But with this new system required training. Assistant engineer Ian Clarke says local WSC workers were trained by Zola, the equipment installed there.

Apex Underground Utilities was contracted to construct the system. President Gregory Miller says WSC is now more than equipped.
