The Midlands Dam water level dropped by 44.9% during this period. The water level in the largest tank, he dropped 24.5%, 19.4% Mare Longue, La Ferme 41.1%, 21.7% Piton du Milieu. Only The Nicolière which grew by 5.9% during the same period. It is currently filled to 72.8%. According to the weather station, the months of October and November and the first two weeks of December are normally dry.
Therefore, the heavy rains that are expected to December 15. The Central Water Authority (CWA) has already prepared a plan he intends to apply. The schedule for the distribution will be reviewed and cuts are planned. The CWA is doing everything to ensure a supply of water until February 2014.
Cuts across the country
The Central Water Authority provides cuts everywhere across the country. This decision was taken because rainfall between May and August showed a deficit of 50%. The average rainfall from May to August is generally 515 millimeters, but this year the weather has recorded only 245 mm of rain. So those who live in areas like Little River, Gros Cailloux and Petit Verger will water twice a day and it will be the same for those who live in high Ecroignard. But the hour supply may change depending on the topography. Those who live in high-Plaines Wilhems also have water twice a day. Same for people in low-Plaines Wilhems. Those who live in areas of Tamarin and surrounding areas will suffer the most because they have water once a day.
On the other hand, Mare aux Vacoas is filled to 65.4% while it was 89.9% in June.
Long-Mare it is filled to 73.9% when it was at 93.3% in June. Farm himself was filled to 76.3% and now it is 35.2%. Piton du Milieu was 87.6% and now it is 65.9% and Midlands Dam is filled to 52.3% when it was 97.2%. Only The Nicolière which has improved during this period. It is filled to 72.8% when it was at 66.9% in June.
The tank Nicolière is currently processing about 70 000 m3 of water per day and groundwater, 65 000 m3. In the east, with groundwater that has CWA including Small Package, Constance, Camp Thorel and Bel Etang, the body gets to provide water.
The CWA has also removed a little over 2500 m3 of water Françoise Rivière and put it in the tank of the unit in order to supply regions as Lallmatie, Good and Broken Home-Verdiaire.
In the south, the agency plans to remove 19,000 m3 of water from Rivière-du-Poste. In the same process, a water pipe will be installed in the Midlands Dam station to station Piton du Milieu treatment to transfer a volume of 20 000 m3 of water per day during the difficult times. In parallel, the CWA strives to reduce Non Revenue Water (NRW) on the distribution network. Already, several studies have been engaged to reduce NRW in total cost of Rs 1 billion. Among the works that have been finalized, we note the connection Mare Longue reservoir to the station's water treatment Marie.
