The Board of Directors guarantees sound governance to WSC by constant and effective interaction with our Executive Team.
WSC’s diverse group of talented executives work as a team to ensure client satisfaction by the co-ordination of all activities which influence the quality, quantity, distribution, and management of our water supply.
There are five strategic divisions each headed by a member of Executive Management.
WSC is preparing for the future by focusing on tomorrow today. We have developed a comprehensive "Roadmap" for long term sustainability.
In 2009, a Water & Sanitation Sector Strategic Plan was developed with grant financing from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and included updating previous WSC Business Plans.
We are committed to continuously improving services in our key focus areas. We deliver on our promises.
The Water and Sewerage Corporation recently began a 3-month pilot programme to improve the overall water quality in New Providence, beginning in areas that encompass approximately 70% of the island’s water demand.
The pilot programme has introduced SeaQuest, a certified drinking water corrosion control sequesterant, which is used by water industry professionals in the USA, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Guyana, Virgin Islands, and Trinidad. The pilot is testing the effectiveness of the product SeaQuest to address water quality challenges generally associated with aging infrastructure and aggressive water such as desalinated sources.
WSC is involved in a number of special initiatives aimed at improving the social and economic climate of The Bahamas.
The Bahamas have always had a challenge in providing enough freshwater for its citizens. To collect enough water to meet their needs, Bahamians have historically dug shallow wells and collected water from rooftop drainage, as well as from sinkholes and pits. And they have imported quite a bit of their water from other countries and islands.
