The water plant in the vicinity of Cappoons Bay sustained extensive damages during the passage of Hurricanes Irma and Maria in September 2017. Work had been on-going since then to repair and secure the plant in the event of a similar natural disaster.
According to a press release from Government Information Services, Minister for Transportation, Works and Utilities, Honourable Kye M. Rymer (R5) said he was satisfied with the completion of the restoration works and expressed his gratitude to the community for their patience.
“I commend all persons involved in the works of the Cappoons Bay Plant, and further thank you for your services. I also wish to thank the people of the Carrot Bay community for their patience during these long months without a steady water supply. I am elated that we have been able to complete these works to alleviate the inconvenience that you have been enduring,” Minister Rymer said.
When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.
