The resolution of sewer issues occurring next to the Delta gas station in Pasea has encountered a problem due to a delay in the shipment of imported materials.
Public Works and Utilities Minister Kye Rymer gave the hint while noting that he felt it was necessary to provide an update on the issue as it is an issue that affects residents. .
He said the water and sewer department is currently waiting for materials that were ordered a few months ago and should have arrived by now.
“However, due to the economic challenges facing the global pandemic, these items are still in transit to the territory,” Rymer said.
“The department aims to do an overhaul and install a permanent remedy that should last up to 50 to 60 years. This project will be carried out in three phases, and I am pleased to report that the first phase has been completed and as a result 320 feet of line have been installed,” said Rymer.
According to Rymer, once the materials are shipped, a temporary fix will be implemented to address the current issue that has resulted in a massive crater in the eastbound lane of the freeway.
“I thank the public for their patience and understanding and ask that you exercise extreme caution when crossing on the eastbound track of the Sir Francis Drake [Highway]“, added Rymer.
