An ecological water spring, which is located in the main square of San Lawrenz, was inaugurated on Thursday.
The Council explained that this is the first water spring of its kind in Malta, and is providing water which is purified at source and made potable.
The mayor of San Lawrenz Noel Formosa, said this spring is contributing to our country’s efforts to combat the harm caused by the use of plastic.
He added that the project, co-financed by the Ministry for Gozo, will serve to provide safe drinking water without the need to resort to the use of plastic bottles for drinking water .The inauguration was also attended by the Minister for Gozo Justine Caruana, who praised the San Lawrenz Local Council for its ecological conscience.
She remarked that this refers not only to this particular initiative, but to various others undertaken by the council and which have served as pilot projects and then were carried out later by other villages.
