The Water section is located in Stanley, just 100 meters south of the Power Station on Reservoir Hill (behind the swimming pool). The section has been located in its current site since 1989 where previous to that, the water treatment facilities were located at Moody Brook.

The water section comprises of seven members of staff; four of which are responsible for the water treatment side of operations, two who are responsible for the distribution system and finally the water section supervisor.

On average 680m3 of water is produced daily for the population of Stanley, businesses and various offshore companies.

Demand for water does vary seasonally with the summer months seeing higher usage due to various factors including Falkland Islands Meat Company operations, agriculture usage, cruise ship and other offshore industries.

The treated water is tested daily at the water treatment plant to insure correct chemical treatment processes are adhered too. Fortnightly bacterial water analysis is undertaken by the KEMH pathology section. Samples are also sent to the UK annually to insure that WHO standards are been met.

The water section is also responsible for water mains installation. In most cases water services are installed into properties two meters from the properties boundary fence, after which it is up to the property owner to connect into.

The water section also signs off permits to dig, copies of which are available under Public Information-Permits on this website.
