Now the new challenge facing the Central Water Authority (CWA), is to control the water pressure and prevent the old pipe network can break, causing losses. This is also a point that emphasizes Prem Saddul, president of the CWA.
After the reduction of the water supply, the question facing all Mauritians now, after the improvement of reservoir levels, is: "The CWA does soften the water supply, hours of supply will- these journals, especially the central plateau? "
Asked about this, Prem Saddul says many people in Plaines Wilhems already supplied between 18 and 24 hours a day. The President of the CWA to note: "While the tanks are filled to 100%. But that does not mean we should waste water. We are no longer in the red. We went green, but you have to manage our stock water, as we enter the winter season. Between July and November, we all know that there is no heavy rain to fill the tanks. "
Thus, one of the initiatives of the CWA is the installation of 'Reducing pressure valves’ to control the pressure and prevent burst pipes under pressure. Especially, pipes dating back several decades. In addition, the CWA relies heavily on the support of Singaporeans experts. The pilot of the CWA, with the Singaporean collaboration will be implemented in the region of high Plaines Wilhems. This will make the monitoring of water perdition; monitoring counters, to make contribution of new technologies for the detection of damaged pipes and stalking thieves water. This will help to reduce the proportion of non-revenue water '.
On the other hand, Prem Saddul is optimistic about the supply of Port Louis and surrounding areas, which users depend on the treatment plant straws. With muddy water from flooding Saturday, a decision was taken to stop the operations of this station not to damage the valves. And 8000 cubic meters of water were drawn daily Pierrefonds between Saturday and Monday.
