The Water Services Corporation notes that due to illegal discharge of an unidentified white substance it had to shut down operations at its Gozo sewage plant. This is a measure to ensure that the plant’s operations are safeguarded and that it recovers treatment efficacy as soon as possible.
The Corporation informed the relevant environmental authorities and 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: firstname.lastname@example.org; Website live chat: www.wsc.com.mt; or through our social media.
