Piped water project resumes on Cayman Brac

| 03/12/2014

(CNS): Over thenext eight months the Water Authority will install approximately three miles of pipes on Cayman Brac. The authority resumed its work there Monday and engineers have started work at the intersection of West End Road and Cross Road, the WA said. Workers will lay pipes from there to West End Primary school and all developed side roads in between. “The new pipeline will ensure that the Water Authority can deliver piped water efficiently and reliably to more customers,” said Water Authority Deputy Director Tom van Zanten. The project is part of the Water Authority’s 10 year plan to expand water infrastructure and services in the Sister Islands. 

Since November last year, approximately two miles of new water main has been installed and one mile of existing water main has been upgraded.

“We are confident that these infrastructure development works will offer employment opportunities while expanding the services to residents and businesses in Cayman Brac and ultimately to Little Cayman," said Water Authority Board Chairman Lemuel Hurlston.

Although the authority said it does not anticipate any road closures during the pipelaying work, motorists traveling in the area are urged to proceed with caution and obey all road signs.Where required, flag men will facilitate traffic flow.

    Not only that West End Primary School is a small portion of the island.  Most of the people live East.

    Why stop the water at West End Primary School? Most of the new houses on the island are built in the Cotton Tree Bay Hights Development.
