Nassau, New Providence – For residents in Western New Providence, the New Providence Water Development Company (NPWDCo) has been the provider of safe, reliable water supply and wastewater services for many years. Through its service agreement with the Water & Sewerage Corporation, NPWDCo has and continues to service residents in Lyford Cay, Old Fort Bay, Mount Pleasant,
“Since the development of the Town Centre, the company has wanted its offices there.” explained NPWDCo. President, Andrew Symonette. “Many of our customers pay their bills in person so they can now stop by on their way to do their shopping or on their way to work”.
NPWDCo. currently accepts payments by mail or bank transfer but is working to establish an online payment service later in the year via a new website and has launched a Facebook page to assist the growing company with its communications needs, providing updates in real time and online assistance for minor inquiries.
“We live in a very tech driven world” said Symonette, “People want to be able to find information at any time as well as view and pay their bills online. We encourage all our customers to visit our Facebook page and like and follow us at https://www.facebook.com/NPWDCo/. There, we will advise of work upgrades, payment options and new projects.”
The company which formally began in 1967, has developed quickly, keeping pace with rapidly expanding Western New Providence area. “We have spent the last year investing almost twenty million dollars in upgrades for the whole distribution network; removing cast iron and galvanized pipework and installing new pipework in areas prone to leaks. In addition to this we are nearing completion of reverse osmosis desalination plant, greatly improving the quality of product for our customers.”
Final work on the RO plant is expected to be completed later this summer at which point the company will produce and distribute potable water in line with World Health Organization standards.
