Residents get cash grant after unkept promise for 24/7 water supply

PM Pravind Jugnauth has said he never pretended that “we could solve all the problems”. He was referring to an earlier promise – that has not been kept yet – that the government would ensure that the whole country gets water 24/7.

Speaking at the launch of the Water Tank & Pump Grant Scheme in St-Pierre, Jugnauth said various villages in the region faced water supply issues.

Residents of the regions that do not get water around the clock received Rs8,000 to buy water tanks.

He added that his Government was offering this immediate relief by the time it invested in the necessary means and infrastructure to provide for appropriate water supply. 

He added that other projects were in the pipeline to improve water distribution across the country and attain the 24/7 water supply objective.

The PM pointed out that the Government was investing in water filtering equipment to increase water distribution capacity at Valetta and Dagotière.

The outreach initiative is a joint collaboration of the Central Water Authority, under the aegis of the Ministry of Energy and Public Utilities, with the Development Bank of Mauritius. 

Similar events were being held concurrently at Professor J. Baguant Reception Hall in Quartier Militaire, the sub hall at St. Julien d’Hotman and the village hall at Nouvelle Découverte.
