Minister for Water Management Joe Mizzi said that with the inauguration of the Ras il-Ħobż plant in Gozo, farmers can benefit from the provision of high quality water all year round. Around 1,250 Gozitan farmers have already requested assistance from the Government over the past year.
Mizzi said that a rigorous purification system will produce high quality water from sewage which can be used for agriculture and industry. On the production of water in Gozo, Mizzi added that ongoing studies for the building of a new desalination plant at Ħondoq ir-Rummien are currently taking place.
Minister for Gozo Justyne Caruana said that after many years of waiting, Gozitan farmers will finally have free water.
