Gozo families and businesses will finally benefit from a water supply which is in independent from that of Malta.
Gozo’s first ever reverse osmosis plant was inaugurated on Thursday evening by Prime Minister Robert Abela.
Through this €11 million EU co-funded project, the Water Services Corporation has turned a previously abandoned building in Ħondoq ir-Rummien into a state-of-the-art plant that will provide better access to quality water to Gozitans.
The new plant has the capacity to produce around 9,000 cubic meters of high quality water per day and is equipped with modern, energy efficient pumps.
The Prime Minister described the project as one of the most efficient in the world, and a clear demonstration of the Government’s vision to transform Gozo into a place where environmental and digital transformations begin.
The Prime Minister was flanked by Ministers Miriam Dalli and Clint Camilleri, and Parliamentary Secretary Stefan Zrinzo Azzopardi.
