PHILIPSBURG:--- Seven Seas Water, the water production company has discontinued the production of water due to the ground seas.
During the passing of a hurricane, tanks should be filled to capacity to:
- Ensure at least a 2 day storage of water to the community.
- To prevent the tanks being damaged.
Yesterday NV GEBE ensured all tanks were filled to capacity, however, by this morning water technicians realised that the tanks were running low. NV GEBE was therefore compelled to discontinue the water supply.
This was an emergency decision to ensure water was sufficient for the community after the storm.
NV GEBE apologises for the inconvenience this has caused.
