350k water scheme on the cards

Posted Thu 26th June 2008 at 11:38

Guernsey States will be asked to approve a £350,000 scheme to improve Alderney's water infrastructure.

General Service Committee members in Alderney approved the project, which will improve collection and transfer facilities to the main storage at Battery Quarry, earlier this week.

Alderney States members will vote on the proposal before it is presented to Guernsey.

Frank Dean, the member responsible for water, said: "After years of debate, we are now at the start of a series of phased projects that will provide Alderney with a sustainable supply of good quality water.

"It is absolutely vital to the island's future that we solve this long-running problem. The States has the commitment and energy to achieve this."

Mr Dean recently outlined Alderney's water strategy but warned a lack of cash may prevent the island's "totally inadequate" collection and treatment systems from being improved.

Mr Dean also explained why a million gallons of excess water - about 25 per cent more than usual - had been consumed in Alderney during May.

He said: "This coincided with some major leaks in the system and easing of restrictions. Whilst it is thought the easing of restrictions alone is not the reason for the sudden rise, the situation is being closely monitored."
