Water and Sewerage Corporation Team Visits Great Harbour Cay

GREAT HARBOUR CAY, Berry Islands, The Bahamas --The Water & Sewerage Corporation (WSC) led by Executive Chairman Adrian Gibson, along with management, visited Great Harbour Cay, the Berry Islands, on Friday, May 31, 2019 to review the corporation's facilities on the island and plans for improvement going forward.

Great Harbour Cay has approximately 1,000 residents who get their water from 14 wells which pump 24 hours a day. Residents enjoy water service free-of-charge at present. However, with upcoming major improvements it is anticipated that each house on the island will have its own water meter, after which a fee will be in order.
