SOLOMON Water’s (SW) General Manager Ian Gooding said they still lose 25 percent of water through people stealing.

For this, SW’s General Manager does not rule out the fact that they still need to do a lot in the water management.

“That is to stop people from doing illegal connections. We’ve got almost 10, 000 connections in which obviously it is a lot of work to go through the areas where illegal connections are but we are working on that,” said Gooding.

He elaborated in sharing also to Island Sun that for years 2018-2019, they are going to make extra resource and energy into what they call non revenue water.

“The other part is fixing the leaks because we lose a lot of water through leaks as well,” said Gooding
