Madang MP, Bryan Kramer, with representatives from Water PNG and PNG Power travelled up to the Water Plant at Panim village a 15 minutes’ drive out of Madang Town.
With assistance from Niugini Electrical, Sigma and Fimali Ltd, inspections are currently being made to assess the damages made.
In an interview with Mr. Kramer, he said, "We have arranged for contractors to come on site because water is a critical issue and we cannot wait for months to do the repairs."
Fimali Ltd. and Niugini Electrical have arranged for parts to come in this week.
The Member added that the contractors will all work together with PNG Power and Water PNG and he is hopeful to restore water by Sunday this week
