Following intensive work after the recent major storm, The Water Services Corporation said that it has restored the fresh water supply from Malta to Gozo, with the submarine pipeline now fully functional.
The Corporation’s instrumentation had noted abnormal pressures on the submarine pipeline during the storm . As soon as the weather permitted, the Corporation said that it dispatched a team of divers who confirmed extensive damage on the first 100 metre section leaving Comino.
The Corporation explained that subsequently, the required heavy infrastructural setup was put in place and this allowed the execution of the required repairs in the shortest possible time frame.
The WSC said that it will still continue its intervention over the coming days to further strengthen the asset.
CEO, Richard Bilocca expressed the Corporation’s gratitude for its workforce that, he said, “continues to excel even in the most adverse conditions.”
