40,000 residents to benefit from Eccles Well

The Eccles Well is a major infrastructure and system upgrade project being undertaken by the Guyana Water Incorporated (GWI) to significantly improve the level of service and supply of potable water to residents of Eccles to Providence.

The new well at Eccles will be connected to the Eccles treatment plant via a transmission line.

The well is part of the Government of Guyana’s massive investment to improve water infrastructure and system upgrades in response to the increasing demand for potable water due to the immense housing development on the East Bank corridor.
