NAWASA Observes World Water Day With Awareness Walk

PR – The National Water and Sewerage Authority (NAWASA) observed World Water Day on Tuesday, March 22nd, 2022, guided by the theme “Groundwater – Making the Invisible Visible”.
As part of its activities, the Authority hosted an ‘Awareness Walk’, to highlight the important role of groundwater in its supply capacity.
The NAWASA team was joined by representatives of the Grenada Solid Waste Management Authority (GSWMA) and the Climate Resilient Water Sector in Grenada (G-CREWS) members of the public, on the three mile walk from the Woburn Playing Field to NAWASA’s groundwater well at Woodlands, around Woburn and back to the playing field.
Groundwater accounts for 5% percent of NAWASA’s public water supplies, via five groundwater wells.
The Authority currently has boreholes or groundwater wells at Ballies Bacolet and Chemin Valley in St. David, and Woodlands in St. George, generating a combined total of approximately 890,000 gallons of water per day and supplying over 25,000 consumers.
World Water Day is an annual United Nations observance that highlights the importance of fresh water. The day is used to advocate for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.
