Georgetown will have three mobile pumps by December.
In a recent interview with the Department of Public Information (DPI), Chief Executive Officer of the National Drainage and Irrigation Authority, Frederick Flatts said the pumps are among a larger package being financed under an Indian government line of credit. “The whole package is US$4 Million.
That’s for the pumps. The mobile pumps will be used in Georgetown to help relieve flooding.”
Flatts said that the acquisition of the pumps is awaiting the go-ahead from the National Procurement and Tender Administration Board, in keeping with the procurement legislation. “As soon as we have that approval we will go ahead and hire a supplier for the pumps.”
