Salt Pond Pump Back in Operation Running 24-Hours a Day to Lower Water Level

The Salt Pond Pump has been in full operation since Monday evening 8.00pm after it was repaired, and will run 24-hours a day to bring down the water level in the Salt Pond.

Ministry VROMI is reviewing additional measures to bring down the water level such as having access water in the Salt Pond transferred to the Fresh Water Pond once the water level in the latter is lower than the Salt Pond.

Lowering the water level in the pond due to the recent sporadic rainfall over a two week period could take about three weeks.

At the moment, the Salt Pond is 95 centimeters above the normal level. Water level in the pond is kept approximately at 70 centimeters below sea water level.
