The Water Services Corporation is very pleased to announce that the Planning Authority gave the green light to two of its largest and most important projects as part of the net zero-impact utility project.
The Gozo reverse osmosis was also approved unanimously during the session. Coincidentally the tender for the same RO closed on the same day, and a total of 10 bids from 4 different contractors were put forward. The adjudication process will unfold over the next days with construction works planned within a few months.
The permitting process confirmed how the projects are based on the highest environmental standards and will particularly lead to net positive impact in terms of water resources. Moreover, both these projects will result in improved water quality (taste) across Malta and Gozo.

WSC CEO Richard Bilocca thanked the Corporation’s workforce for its sterling work in delivering the preparatory stages for these large projects within the shortest possible timeframe. He stressed that the overall project which will surpass the EUR 130m mark ‘will result in better quality of life through a substantially improved service’.
This project will be coordinated by the Water Services Corporation and will be co-financed through EU Cohesion funds.
