The Ministry of Public Works reminds the public to tune in to the Government of Bermuda Facebook page this evening, Wednesday, 28 September, for a live video presentation on its water sector consultation.
From 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. hosts J. Tarik Christopher, from the Ministry of Public Works, and John Ikeda from Castalia Advisors, will discuss the consultation and take questions from viewers. It will be moderated by Tari Trott from the Department of Communications.
The consultation, entitled, Opportunities for Improvements in Bermuda’s Water Sector, is running until 28 October 2022 and will focus on improving regulations around business practices, the protection of consumers concerning the production and supply of water, and the collection and disposal of wastewater.
While Bermuda’s traditional approach to water services and water sector management has served the Island well, opportunities for improvement exist.
The Government of Bermuda believes that if the sector remains unchanged, there is a risk of adverse public health and environmental outcomes, higher costs for Bermudian households and a detrimental impact on the country’s reputation as a premier vacation destination.
The public is encouraged to visit forum.gov.bm to view the consultation document and submit feedback under the page Consultation on opportunities for improvement in Bermuda’s water sector.
The Ministry also encourages the public to take this quick survey.
