The Water Services Corporation notes with pleasure that Malta has once again topped the ‘European Bathing Water Quality’ report, with 97.7% of bathing water considered of excellent quality. The Corporation is delighted to contribute towards this high standard through its infrastructure and the sterling effort of its workforce.

In addition to the already extensive infrastructure, the Corporation is currently executing EU part-financed investment that would allow it to keep excelling at its tasks. Major sewage pipelines are currently being upgraded, sewage treatment technology is being boosted with state of the art technology, and its discharge monitoring technology will be given a radical overhaul.  This will be done through the use of state of the art equipment that will be in a position to detect foul play on a virtually live automated basis.

CEO Ivan Falzon stated that ‘The results published today are a certificate of gratitude to the dedication and efforts of WSC personnel in managing water systems to benefit the environment around us.’

The Corporation reiterates that the 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, crucial 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.
