A New Shaft Ordered for Caye Caulker

Dave Pascascio

The effect that the shortage is having on local tourism on the island cannot be understated.  While BWS is aware of that issue, Operations Manager Dave Pascascio explains the process of procuring a new shaft.

“We understand the time of the year, we understand the number of people on the island, so we are cognizant of that fact and we will not, we will do what we have to do to ensure that we increase pressures in the system.”


Isani Cayetano

“This, however, has resulted in massive losses in the tourism sector.  Coming from the island, once again, they are speaking of cancellations and that sort of stuff.  It’s not necessarily your fault as the company, but couldn’t this have been averted at any point, at the point where the engineers or the guys on the ground were doing the installation and saw that it wasn’t a proper fit?”


Dave Pascascio

“Like I said, they called me immediately.  We didn’t have another one in store because it’s something that lasts eight years and we had the previous one in stores probably about five years, right.  So we tried to order one, we couldn’t because the place was closed.  We ordered one last night, that was fabricated last night and is being shipped but it won’t reach Belize until Monday.  But in the interim, the one that we, the M&E team, made on the ground yesterday is working as expected.  The plant is fully functional but there is no guarantee on it so we won’t stop the order.  We will go through with the order and make sure that we have that on the ground.”


Bowen and Bowen, as a corporate citizen, has donated a significant supply of water to the island.  Almost four thousand, five gallon bottles of water has been sent out, along with seven thousand, six hundred and eighty bottles of water.
