Court orders WSC to pay hotel €55,000 for sewage overflow damage
A court yesterday ruled that the Water Services Corporation must pay nearly €55,000 in damages to the Grand Hotel in Mġarr, Gozo after damage was caused in a sewage overflow in 2009.
Belmont Co Ltd claimed that in September that year damage was caused to the hotel’s ballroom by a drainage overflow.
Magistrate Joanne Vella Cuschieri found in favour of Belmont and stated that the WSC was responsible for the damages sustained by the hotel. The WSC was ordered to pay the hotel €54,912 in damages.
