AN estimated 1,200 residents of Matura are expected to benefit from an improved water supply, following the construction of the Matura Potable Water Treatment Plant, which draws water from the Matura River for treatment.
This according to a news release issued by the Water and Sewerage Authority. The release stated that last Wednesday, Minister of State in the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources Ramona Ramdial commissioned the plant, which took two years to construct.
It further stated that with the construction of the plant, which is located along the Toco Main Road, several communities in Matura—including Matura Main Road, Orosco Road, Mendoza Road and Fortune Street—will be supplied with a minimum 24-hour-per-day, five-days-per-week water supply.
The Matura Potable Water Treatment has a production capacity of 500,000 gallons of water per day, according to the release.
