Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Last night’s bad weather has caused damage to the water main linking Malta and Gozo. This was announced by the Water Services Corporation (WSC).

The damage seems to be located somewhere between Malta and Comino. The Corporation stated that despite this, there will definitely be a water supply in Gozo during the works being undergone to fix the damages. The WSC added that works will start when the rough sea subsides.

The Corporation said that such an incident proves that Gozo ought to have an independent water supply, and further proves that the €11 million investment to do so is a necessary one. This independent water supply will be achieved via a reverse osmosis being installed in Ħondoq ir-Rummien.

This project is now at an advanced stage, where the building’s restoration is well in process to be finished by the end of the year. The reverse osmosis will then be installed.
