Mauritius: Government Programme 2015-2019 - Ensuring a Proper Domestic Water Supply, Electricity Production and Distribution
Government Programme 2015-2019 spells out the major reforms to be brought to the public utilities sector, especially in relation to domestic water supply, electricity production and distribution as well as waste management. Addressing the long standing problem of water supply in the country remains a priority.
Various measures have been defined in that respect for the wellbeing of the population. The most prominent are the mobilisation of the water resources as well as infrastructure including the renewal and replacement of pipes to reduce water loss and ensure a year round water supply.
The Bagatelle Dam will be also completed within a year and a new dam will be constructed at Rivière des Anguilles to improve water supply in the South region. Furthermore, provision is being made to increase the capacity of La Nicolière reservoir to satisfy growing demand in the North.
