COLMAR, Pa. — The donated gas feed equipment from Severn Trent Services is being used to chlorinate the island of Antigua’s drinking water supply after Hurricane Gonzalo damaged the Antigua Public Utilities Authority (APUA) water treatment plant’s disinfection system.

COLMAR, Pa. — Severn Trent Services has donated three Capital Controls® Series 480 all-vacuum gas feeders and ejectors to the Antigua Public Utilities Authority (APUA), according to a press release.
