15-m Gallon Water Treatment Plant Set For Content, St Catherine

The National Water Commission (NWC) is far advanced in its plans to increase the water production capacity for the Corporate Area, by establishing a 15-million-gallon water treatment plant under a public-private partnership (PPP) arrangement.


Prime Minister Andrew Holness made the announcement in his 2019/20 Budget Debate presentation in the House of Representatives on Tuesday.


He said the treatment plant is proposed to be constructed at Content in St Catherine, at an estimated cost of $9 billion, and will use water from the Rio Cobre.


Areas such as Portmore and sections of Spanish Town in St Catherine stand to benefit from the supply of this plant.


Additionally, Holness informed that the NWC is finalizing negotiations for the expansion of the Roaring River Water Treatment Plant by five million gallons per day as well as the construction of 33 kilometers of transmission mains to support the tourism industry of Negril.
