The Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) is in the process of installing a redundant water supply line to improve the water infrastructure of the terminal building. This new line will provide treated water to the terminal and will serve as a backup to Guyana Water Incorporated (GWI) water treatment system.
Regrettably, on Sunday, August 27, GWI encountered challenges while connecting the line to the terminal, resulting in a blowout of the main connecting valve. Consequently, the terminal experienced a temporary disruption in water supply for several hours. GWI’s contractors and engineers worked diligently to rectify the situation and successfully restored the water supply to the terminal later that evening.
GWI anticipates completing the installation of the additional Water Supply System within one week. This system will not only benefit the airport but also enhance the service provided by GWI to the residents residing in close proximity to the airport environment.
CJIA said it sincerely apologizes for any inconvenience this incident may have caused to passengers and staff.
“We understand the importance of uninterrupted services and are taking proactive measures to ensure the airport has the necessary resources to operate seamlessly,” the airport said.
