As Guyana readies for the rainy season, Government has announced that three more of theThe new pump station at Pine Ground, Mahaicony.India-funded “Surendra” drainage pumps are in operation.Over the last week,http://www.cheapcustomjerseys.us.com/MLB/, four pump stations were put into operations representing some of the largest investments for the drainage and irrigation within recent years.The new pump stations include one at Paradise, East Coast Demerara, Region Four; Pine Ground, Mahaicony, Region Five; Canal 1,Adam Joseph Duhe Dolphins Jersey, West Bank Demerara, Region Three and Vrede-en-Vriendschap,Cheap Soccer Jerseys, Canje, Region Six.According to the Ministry, the pumps will collectively add 720 cubic feet per second drainage capacity to the system.The pump stations now up and running are in Regions Three, Four, Five and Six.The pumps that went into operation last week were part of the EXIM Bank of India US$4M loan signed back in 2011. Indian firm, Surendra Engineering, was hired to supply the 14 fixed and mobile pumps.Surendra is the same Indian contractor fired this year from the Specialty Hospital construction at Turkeyen. Government said that fraud in bond security submitted by the company and failure in meeting deadlines had resulted in the sacking.There have been questions, also, about the delivery of the pumps by Surendra with evidence suggesting that the Indian firm never had any experience to supply pumps. Rather, there was evidence thatThe new Enterprise/Paradise, ECD, pump station.it was being purchased in pieces from different suppliers.Earlier this year, Rose Hall Town, Number 19 Village, Patentia, and Three Friends Pump Stations with a combined capacity of 390 cubic feet per second were commissioned. Before the end of the year, another station at Windsor Forest,Cheap Jerseys China, West Coast Demerara, with 200 cubic feet per second capacity will be added.Earlier this year also, the Ministry said, the Mibikuri, Black Bush Polder, Corentyne irrigation pump capacity was expanded by about 200 cubic feet per second.According to the Ministry, the additional drainage capacity is part of the bigger program to transform and maintain agriculture as the pillar of Guyana’s economy.Major improvements to the drainage systems were last done since the 1970’s and 1980’s,Cheap NFL Jerseys Online, the Ministry said.“During that period several important pump stations were closed and others reduced in capacity.  Most of the closed stations have been restored and others are being expanded. In addition, stations at new locations are being established.“All the new pump stations operationalized in the last week are new locations which now have permanent pumping capacity for the first time.”“With the addition of the pump stations, the NDIA (the National Drainage and Irrigation Authority (NDIA) has paved the way for an immediate increase of its pumping capacity by 720 cubic feet per second, which is equivalent to or has the capacity to drain in excess of 18 million gallons of water per hour.This improved drainage service will benefit approximately 16,Wholesale Jerseys 2017,000 acres of mostly agricultural land,” the ministry said in its statement.Within the next two weeks, the pump station at Windsor Forest will also become operationalized. “For this year alone, pumped drainage capacity for Guyana has increased by more than 1,100 cubic feet per second. This represents the largest increase in Guyana’s pumped drainage capacity in any single year.”According to the NDIA, the increase in capacity created this year means that the country can now pump an additional 30 million gallons of water per hour. In the first quarter of 2015, the authority is expected to further increase its capacity for drainage by almost the same amount.“It should be noted that while pumped drainage is undertaken in areas where there are very high foreshore conditions or there is a small window to effect gravity drainage among other evaluated boundary conditions, the authority is currently constructing drainage sluices at Profit, Bagotville and La Grange.”However, NDIA has warned that while the additional pumping capacity cannot prevent increased accumulation of water on lands when there is intense rainfall, the addition of such stations will significantly increase its ability to effectively drain water in a more efficient and timely manner.“It is expected that by 2020, Guyana’s pump drainage capacity will increase by 100 per cent over the 2010 level,” the Ministry projected.
