World Water Day: WSC investing €13m to start using treated sewag
he Water Services Corporation has submitted plans to the Malta Environment and Planning Authority to undertake a €13 million project (part-funded by the EU) by means of which about eight million cubic metres of treated sewage (25% of the total amount of treated sewage) would be used as secondary water by industry and in the agriculture sector. Finance Minister Tonio Fenech visited the WSC’s new control room in Luqa yesterday, saying that the corporation can now manage water reserves in a better way, immediately identify problems in the distribution system, and coordinate the public’s requests for action in a better way. He said the investment in the control room forms part of a series of important investments aimed at reducing the amount of wasted water. Over the last six years, the amount of water lost to the system went down from 21% to 14%. WSC chief executive Marc Muscat stressed the importance that the corporation places on water safety and security, while ensuring that the price remains reasonable. To commemorate World Water Day (which was yesterday) the WSC will be organising an open day on Saturday. The Pembroke reverse osmosis plant, the Ta’ Barkat sewage treatment plant, the Ta’ Kandja underground galleries, as well as the laboratory and the control room in Luqa will be open to the public between 9am and 4pm. Places are limited, so tickets will be issued from the WSC head office in Luqa on a first-come-first-served basis on the day.(independent.com.mt) The economy and the recycling of water is an important thing, it passes naturally through a system of managing water.

Nearly 5,000 orthopaedic operations in 2011
The orthopaedic department at Mater Dei Hospital is bringing over foreign surgeons to assist local ones to reduce referrals to the UK, and the number of surgeries has also increased – even though waiting lists persist. Additional resources and staff have allowed the orthopaedic wards at Mater Dei Hospital to deal with an increasing number of patients and an increasing number of situations over the past few years. Orthopaedic surgery deals with afflictions to the musculoskeletal system, including fractures. In all, 4,881 orthopaedic operations were carried out last year, of which 1,814 were emergency procedures. Originally, orthopaedic surgeons could make use of just two operating theatres when Mater Dei was opened. But since then – thanks to an increase in staff – they use four operating theatres on weekdays and three on weekends. Fewer elective surgeries are held on weekends, but the number of emergency cases tends to increase. In fact, while one operating theatre is typically handling emergency cases on weekdays, two theatres are dedicated to them on Saturday and Sunday.(independent.com.mt) This is no more to appeal to male doctors from overseas, this includes a new parameter to the economy.

Update 2: Malta mourns Fr Peter
The country this afternoon paid its last respects to Fr Peter in a funeral at St Paul's Church in Valletta. The final tributes to the 75-year-old theologian who died last Friday started in the morning when university staff and students, led by rector Juanito Camilleri lined the ring road and clapped, some throwing yellow carnations as the cortege, which left Mater Dei Hospital at 9.30 a.m. for the University campus passed from in front of them. Fr Peter was a former university rector. The cortege then stopped in front in the chapel where a prayer was said for the repose of his soul. It then proceeded to the Jesuits church in Valletta where Fr Peter lay in state until 1.30 p.m. when the  cortege made its way to St Paul's parish church for the funeral Mass, led by Mgr Anton Gouder. The congregation, which packed the church, was led by President and Mrs George Abela and included Presidents Emeriti Eddie Fenech Adami and Ugo Mifsud Bonnici, as well as Mrs Violet de Marco, President Emeritus Guido de Marco's widow.(timesofmalta.com) A death is always a sad event.
