Set like a gem in the crown of South America, nestled on the North-Eastern shoulder, defying the raging Atlantic Ocean, Guyana's many waterways reflect the source of it's name "The Land of Many Waters"

A GUYANA Water Incorporated (GWI) engineer yesterday assured residents of La Grange, Bagotville and Nismes on West Bank Demerara that their potable water supply would resume within two weeks.

The well at La Grange, from which they were supplied, has not been functioning for the past two weeks but the engineer, Mr Sese Norville and a team were working assiduously yesterday to ascertain the problem with the system.

As consumers continued to complain about the fatigue to obtain supplies, Norville said it is believed that the facility collapsed as a result of sand settling at the bottom and they have to drill and drain before a camera to detect the fault is inserted.

Meanwhile, he told the Guyana Chronicle that five contracts were awarded for the distribution of water daily and the contractors are paid about $1,400 a tank per trip by the Ministry of Housing and Water.
