Remunicipalisation of water services in Martinique

On 28th February 2014, the Community Council of Center-Martinique decided in favour of the remunicipalization of water services in Lamentin and Saint-Joseph.

Odyssi – the public water operator of Fort de France (Martinique Capital) – is likely to take over the service management from La Société Martiniquaise des Eaux, starting from 1st January 2015. The remunicipalisation will contribute to the harmonization of water tariff in the Caribbean Island, with an expected decrease of 3 cents per m³.

The decision follows a long political process, which involved citizens, trade unions and other stakeholders.
