At this morning’s Union Water Supply System Joint Board of Management (UWSS) meeting, members voted unanimously to place a moratorium on new large service water applications for up to 12 months. This is for non-residential applications. The UWSS is using this time to work on reviewing the existing allocations, the plant capacity (and potentially find unused capacity) and to ensure that the water allocation application process is reviewed. The moratorium will ensure modifications, currently taking place at the water treatment plant, to potentially allow for a re-rating for more capacity within the system. For further reading please see report UW/16/21 in our March 17, 2021 agenda.
