Basseterre, St. Kitts, 2nd May, 2018 (MyVueNews.com) – Residents of the Gardens Housing Apartments are basking in relief with the commissioning of a new sewage treatment plant that replaced the old malfunction system.

Valencia, a resident, said, “I am so pleased of what NHC has done because the condition was very bad, but now, NHC has stepped up its game and taken lead.”

The frequently malfunctioning plant at times overflowed resulting in the unbearable odour, with the overflow presenting a health risk.

The National Housing Corporation engaged Jamaican based chemical and electronic company ChemTron to examine the situation and install an appropriate plant to effectively handle the sewage.

During the 1st May, 2018, commissioning, Eugene Hamilton, minister with responsibility for housing said, “Today is another significant day not only for those who live here but also for those of us who are concerned about our environment and the environment that was being damaged by what was taking place here.”

The new system includes a coarse bubble aeration system, additional chemicals to aid in the breakdown of waste, and a chlorination system that filters the water into the sea.

Minister Hamilton thanked the National Housing Corporation (NHC), persons on the ground who worked on the project, the homeowners for their patience, the employees of Parks and Beaches and ChemTron.
