CABINET NOTES – The Cabinet received a report on water shortages as a consequence of a continuing drought. Greater efforts continue to be exerted in order to ensure that every community receives some water several times each week.

The rough seas are beginning to abate and the reverse osmosis plants are capable of increasing productivity. There are six reverse osmosis plants that are capable of producing 8.5 million gallons daily.

At the moment they are producing at little more than 70% capacity but will likely increase as the sand, pebbles and shells fall to the seabed and the water becomes less turbid.
