NWC redirecting effluent from Portmore sewage pumping stations

The National Water Commission (NWC) has commenced operations for the transfer of effluent from Portmore sewage pumping stations to the Soapberry Wastewater Treatment Plant in St. Catherine.  
  
This follows completion of the $2.3 billion Portmore Sewage Project to provide improved sewage-treatment facilities for 200,000 residents.  
  
Under the project, which commenced in 2014, wastewater treatment plants at Independence City, Bridgeport, Hamilton Gardens, and Caymanas Gardens, which were in disrepair, were decommissioned.  
  
The plants, which received a combined flow of just over 18,200 cubic metres per day, were converted into transfer pumping stations for the delivery of sewage to the Soapberry Wastewater Treatment Plant, which has the capacity to treat 75,000 cubic metres of sewage daily.
