Shipping delays force work stoppage in Bodden Town pipeline project

Water Authority Cayman told Cayman 27 its Bodden Town pipeline project will resume once materials arrive to complete renovations to its Lower Valley plant.

The Authority said it will finish laying the remaining 1,000 feet of pipeline once the Lower Valley plant is up and running again.

The Authority said a shipping delay has pushed back the timeline to finish the renovations.

“We need the Lower Valley renovations completed so we have that facility up and running in order to make sure that water is distributed property throughout the distribution network. This is not something the customers would have necessarily known through their experience using the water, but it’s something the engineers know and so they wanted to wait for the reverse osmosis plant to be back in operation to finish the last 1,000 feet,” said Corporate Communications Director Hannah Reid.

She said customers from Coe-Wood beach to Mance road will be on a temporary line until renovations are complete.

As of yet, there is no timetable for the project’s completion.
