Water storage capacity at the Kingston Public Hospital KPH and Victoria Jubilee Hospital VJH downtown Kingston has been significantly boosted through the installation of 30 water tanks.

The tanks, which each hold 2,000 gallons of water, were donated by the Musson Foundation in partnership with T. Geddes Grant and local charity, the Woman’s Club, at a cost of $6 million.

KPH received 17 tanks, with 12 installed in the basement of the Accident and Emergency Department and five serving the wards, while the remaining 13 have been installed at VJH.

They are supplying the hospitals with an additional 60,000 gallons of water per day, adding to the previous 63,000 gallons of storage capacity, and exceeding the estimated 120,000 gallons of water per day that the hospitals require for efficient operation.
