He said that a few of them would extend further.One of the contractors explained that while some of the projects have to be completed in three months, there would be an additional three-month period, in which quality control would be done on the work to ensure that the projects were executed properly.The contracts in Linden were awarded to C&S Construction,Cheap NFL Football Jerseys, while the contracts in Berbice were awarded to Yunas Civil and Building Construction Services. The contracts for the East Coast Demerara were awarded to Olani Husbands Contracting Company, R. Kissoon Constructing Services, Azeem Hussain Baachus and Eddie’s Bobcat, Excavator and Construction Services.The East Bank Demerara contracts were presented to Courtney Benn General Contracting Services Limited, Mascood Ahamad and Faldhari Singh and Sons Contracting Services.According to Singh, the total cost of the 13 contracts was valued at approximately $90 million; he added that the GWI budget for 2008 alone was in the vicinity of $3 billion.

GWI, he maintained, was doing it partly to develop the water sector of Guyana,Wholesale Authentic Jerseys, despite the negative reports often portrayed in the media.He encouraged the contractors to execute their tasks efficiently and effectively, and explained that some of the contractors had been awarded with multiple contracts as there is a ‘shortage of competent and capable contractors in Guyana.’Singh cautioned the contractors not to damage the roads and surrounding areas while they execute the stipulations of their contracts. He also called on them to execute the projects in keeping with standards.“Don’t make us (GWI) come down hard on you (contractors),” cautioned Singh, as he told the contractors that GWI would no longer be accepting substandard work, especially in the area of piping from contractors as they had done in the past.The CEO of GWI also took the opportunity to address the issue of electricity, reminding consumers that GWI requires more than the 120/240 volts of current normally supplied to households. Water is extracted from as much as 1,000 feet below ground and the pumps operated all rely on GPL. Faulty power supply damages these pumps and denies people access to water. There is no compensation from the power company, Mr Singh said.With this in mind, the CEO of the water company encouraged persons to store water,NFL Jerseys Outlet, as no one could be definite as to when and if the power would be cut. If some water was collected and stored for future use, should the electricity be cut then consumers would still have some water that they could use until the power is restored. And they do not have to resort to breaking the mains,cheap jerseys from china, a tendency that is now responsible of many leaks in the system and the consequent loss of thousands of gallons of water per day.(Rustom Seegopaul)
