Solomon Water future focused

Solomon Islands Water Authority, trading as Solomon Water, unveiled its Strategic Plan for the next 30 years to the public this week.

The SOE’s Strategic Plan, which sets out its focus up until the year 2047, was developed for Solomon Water by Australian firm Hunter H20. A Tariff Review is also part of the plan and this will be discussed with Government in a few months’ time.

The work will be undertaken in phases but the main goal is to ensure Solomon Islands has a stable, healthy and safe urban water and waste water supply for the next 30 years.

Board Chairman Phil Bradford says the work plan is an ambitious foundation for the organisation’s future.
