The Water Services Corporation notes that due to illegal discharge of animal waste it had to shut down operations at its Gozo sewage plant. Such material clogs the plant and causes severe damages in the expensive equipment used to produce new water that is being distributed to farmers.

The situation within the plant is expected to stabilise early tomorrow morning.

The Corporation is gathering all information which will be passed on to the police.

The Corporation reiterates that sewage infrastructure is very complex and delicate and that such infrastructure is damaged through the improper use of the urban sewer system. It is therefore very important that only human toilet waste and degradable toilet paper are discharged in the system. Any suspected foul play or problems with the sewer can be reported to the Corporation on Freephone: 8007 6400; Email: customercare@wsc.com.mt; Website live chat: www.wsc.com.mt; or through our social media.
