WASCO RECOMMENCES PLANS TO FORMALIZE THE TI-ROCHER MICOUD WATER PROJECT
Plans have recommenced for the hosting of a ceremony to formalize the start of works on the Ti-Rocher Micoud Water Project. The event, which was originally scheduled to take place on August 2, 2018, was postponed due to the passing of the former parliamentary representative for Micoud South, Arsene James. Mr James had been integrally involved in the commissioning of the project and had been lobbying for its commencement since 2002.
The ceremony is now slated for August 22, 2018 at 3pm at the tank site in TiRocher Micoud.
Four contracts have been awarded for the installation of pipes to connect the Micoud treatment plant to an already installed 100,000 imperial gallon tank at Morne Desir, Ti-Rocher.
The selected contractors include Mr Felix Samuel, Mr Gaspar St Hilaire and Mr Ted Emanuel, all from the area of Micoud South. The project includes four phases and the laying of approximately 1.468 km of PVC and ductile iron pipes, fittings, valves and other related infrastructure.
A signing ceremony for three of the contracts took place at WASCO's Lanse Road headquarters on July 30, 2018. Present were WASCO's General Manager Mr. Edmund Regis, Chairman of the Board of Directors, Mr. Francis Denbow and Technical Committee Directors which include Directors Mr. Eglan Flavien, Mr Joseph Dujon and Mr Paul Joseph. Also present were Design and Construction Manager Mr. Kelvin Emilien and Corporate Secretary/Legal Officer Mrs Nichola Benjamin. The fourth contract is still pending and awaits official signing
The project is to be completed by November 26, 2018. Motorists and pedestrians traversing the area are advised to exercise caution along the route.
