Water service was restored to Central Georgetown early Thursday morning at approximately 6:00hrs, following a planned disruption of water service, which commenced on Wednesday.
It was done to facilitate pipe relocations and interconnections along Mandela Avenue.
The Guyana Water Inc. (GWI) said in a statement that while water has been restored, water pressure is expected to be at a reduced level in some areas. The water pressure is expected to take some time to build up during the course of the day.
The restoration of water service was far beyond previously proposed timelines, as a result of major technical difficulties experienced along the worksite.
The expansion of the Mandela Avenue road is a Ministry of Public Works project and the works undertaken to interconnect the pipelines were under the purview of contractor Sinhohydro and executed by several sub-contractors, with the guidance of GWI.
