Water Interruptions Likely As Works Begin On Zion Hill Reservoir

Water Interruptions Likely As Works Begin On Zion Hill Reservoir

Residents situated between Towers to Belmont in the western end of Tortola are being pre-warned of water interruptions on the horizon as restoration works on the Zion Hill Reservoir kicks off.

A press release from the Government issued on Friday, June 25, informed that work is slated to commence on June 28 with the “dismantling of the existing structure.”

It continued: “The Water and Sewerage Department has made arrangements to tap into other water sources to meet the residents demands during the restoration stage. [However] Residents are notified that despite these efforts, there may be water interruptions experienced from Towers to Belmont during this period.”

Persons residing in those communities are being asked to follow the news and social media for updates in relations to the disruption of their water supply.

Updated reservoir

Upon completion, the Zion Hill Reservoir is expected to have a larger water storage capacity and will be expected to be more resilient to natural disasters.

The release further said this particular reservoir is the final reservoir to be constructed as the Ministry of Transportation Works and Utilities, in partnership with the Recovery and Development Agency (RDA), aims to improve the water distribution system in the territory.
