KINGSTON, Jamaica — The National Water Commission (NWC) says it is far advanced in its plans to increase the water production capacity for the Corporate Area by establishing a 15-million gallon water treatment plant under a public-private partnership (PPP) arrangement.

Prime Minister Andrew Holness, made the announcement in his 2019/20 Budget Debate presentation in the House of Representatives yesterday.

He said the treatment plant is proposed to be constructed at Content in St Catherine, at an estimated cost of $9 billion, and will use water from the Rio Cobre River.

“It is expected that this agreement will be finalised in the first quarter of 2019/20 and implemented over the next 30 months,” he said.

Areas such as Portmore, and sections of Spanish Town in St Catherine, stand to benefit from the supply of this plant.

Additionally, Holness said that the NWC is finalising negotiations for the expansion of the Roaring River Water Treatment Plant by five million gallons per day as well as the construction of 33 kilometres of transmission mains to support the tourism industry of Negril.
