WEB, Aruba

One of the reasons Aruba is a popular destination may sound simple, but it is very important: Safe drinking water. Aruba’s fresh water supply comes from the WEB facility located in the Balashi area of the island. The desalinization plant produces millions of cubic feet of clean, delicious water every single day. Here’s a look at the place from the air.

The smokestacks indicate the location of the electrical generating and fresh water production equipment. Recently, more efficient generators have been installed as the island upgrades its capacity to meet rising demand. There are also the windmills on the southeast side of the island. I’ll have a photo of them soon. In the mean time, the tap water in Aruba is excellent. Drink plenty of it, especially if you’re spending time in the sun.

Bon dia from Aruba.
