The local authority confirmed today that upon resident registration, water trucks will distribute water to certain residential areas on certain days.

On even days, starting tomorrow (Apr 26), water trucks will deliver water to residents living in Kamala Moo 1, 3 and 5 from 9am to 6pm.

On odd days, starting Saturday (Apr 27), the trucks will deliver water to residents living in Moo 2, 4 and 6 from 9am to 6pm.


The daily limit per household is 400 litres and the distribution will continue until the dry season is over, which is expected to be in May.

Residents will need to register beforehand by visiting Kamala OrBorTor between the hours of 9am and 4pm or by calling 076-385640 and dialling option 20.

Kamala residents living outside of the above-mentioned areas may still be able to receive water deliveries and would need to register to do so.

I agree with F. There is no reason why these large developments should not provide for themselves. I worked in the engineering dept. of a large hotel in Bermuda. We had to collect or make all of our fresh water. Companies like Ampac USA sell desalination plants from 10 GPD to 240,000 GPD. All big developments should have to make their own water.

This whole water droughts crisis did reach present stage due to a governor with a ostrich syndrome. All just for the sake of securing tourist arrivals. A shame. That false 'brothers and sisters' talk to save his a.. is  unbelievable after it was him to ignore inhabitants needs of water. Who trust this ceremony governor who put/kept to long  inhabitants in this water misery?

You don't mean to say a certain personage got it wrong when he said there was no drought do you? Where are the additional 4500 unit currently being built in Kamala going to be sourcing their water in future when there is not enough for those living there at present? Any new development should be forced to submit a water management plan before being signed off but its all about the envelopes.
