CABINET NOTES – The Potworks Dam, capable of holding 1,200 million gallons of water is still near-empty because of the long drought that may now be coming to an end.

The Antigua Public Utilities Authority (APUA), therefore, relies 100% on its desalination water to reach homes, businesses and institutions in Antigua.

While the Reverse Osmosis (R/O) plants in Antigua produce more than 7 million gallons daily, and consumption at peak exceeds 8 million gallons, there are challenges in the distribution system because of old and broken pipes.

The Cabinet continues to press APUA’s Water Managers to ensure that no community goes without water for any longer than two days.
