The Lieutenant Governor, His Excellency Vice Admiral Sir Paul Haddacks KCB officially opens new Douglas Water Treatment Works 8 May 2008

The Lieutenant Governor, His Excellency Vice Admiral Sir Paul Haddacks KCB, accompanied by Lady Haddacks, officially opened the new Water Treatment Works in Douglas last Friday, 2nd May, 2008, in glorious sunshine, in the presence of the Chief Minister, the Honourable Tony Brown, Members of Tynwald and other distinguished guests.

The opening ceremony marked the end of a three year scheme by The Crystal Project team; made up of the Isle of Man Water Authority, Earth Tech Engineering Limited (the principal contractor) and Lagan Construction (Isle of Man) Limited (main sub-contractor). The works was delivered on time and on budget.

The Lieutenant Governor, with Chairman of the Board of the Authority, Mr David Cannan MHK and the Chief Executive Mr John Smith inspected the Water Treatment Works before he unveiled the plaque to mark the occasion.

Both the Lieutenant Governor and David Cannan MHK thanked everyone for their commitment in bringing such an important capital project to fruition.

The two new works, one at Sulby which was completed in October 2005, and one at Douglas have replaced all the old water treatment works and the Authority now has the capacity to deliver its vision of crystal clear drinking water to the Island’s population for years to come.
