DOING OUR PART IN THE FIGHT OF COVID-19
Recognizing that water is an essential part of hygiene in controlling this virus, we have taken steps to ensure that the distribution of water for drinking continues, without risk to the NGO's, local volunteers and general public.
We have ensured that there will be no disconnects for water utility customers.
We have worked with the Grand Bahama Power Company to have the Storm Recovery and Stabilization Charge suspended until further notice.
As it relates to our licensees, we understand how challenging these times are, which is why for the period that the Emergency Order lasts, we will suspend collection of licensee fees for the impacted sectors.
In addition, the GBPA is working hand-in-hand with GB Health Services and the Government of The Bahamas to put an extra medical facility on standby at the immediate disposal of GB Health Services, should the need arise.
GBPA, along with the industrial sector, is amassing a pool of additional funds and resources to contribute to GB Health Services for sourcing, procurement and shipping of specialized medical equipment to Grand Bahama - in order to assist with the fight against COVID-19, should the need arise.
In order to ensure the safety of our customers and our team from the spread of COVID-19, we are adhering to all of the preventative measures advised by the Ministry of Health.
Based on the latest Government mandate, we wish to advise that the offices of The Grand Bahama Port Authority, Limited & Group of Companies are closed to the public. However, we will be providing services via phone between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. and also via email. Further, we wish to advise that we will continue to provide essential water and inspection services.
