Water production in Gozo suspended after illegal discharge put workers at risk- WSC

Water Services Corporation

The Water Services Corporation said that an illegal non-domestic sewer discharge of substantial proportions occurred in Gozo today. The water services corporation said in a statement that this lead to a sharp drop in oxygen levels at the Gozo sewage treatment plant, putting the corporation’s workforce at risk.

New water production was suspended as a precautionary measure and should start again early tomorrow morning. The sewage infrastructure is damaged through the improper use of the urban sewer system and it is therefore very important that only human toilet waste and degradable toilet paper are discharged in the system.
