Minister Michael Farrugia today inaugurated two state of the art sewage jetting and suction bowsers that form part of the Water Services Corporation’s EU funded major project. The bowsers are the latest addition to the Corporation’s already advanced fleet and will serve to maintain the sewage network and the pumping stations.

This is a EUR 800,000 investment that will help ensure that Malta excels in sewage treatment and continues to top EU bathing water quality charts. A number of other projects that will increase the Corporation’s sewage treatment potential are being implemented and especially on the enforcement side, there will be major upgrades.

CEO Richard Bilocca thanked the workers who face daily challenging tasks and invited the public to continue helping the Corporation’s workforce by making proper use of the sewer system – dispose only of human toilet waste and degradable toilet paper in the system – the 3Ps.

Minister Michael Farrugia together with CEO Richard Bilocca, toured the Corporation’s head office including the Central Control Room, that was also recently upgraded with top-end equipment.

Through this control room, the Corporation controls its entire sewage and potable water network in real-time, allowing it to monitor potential faults, quality parameters and also control all its outstations remotely. It is pertinent to note that the SCADA that runs the system is inhouse developed.
