Solomon Water previously known as the Solomon Islands Water Authority, is a state-owned enterprise established under the Solomon Islands Water Authority and State-Owned Enterprises Acts. In May 2018 they celebrated their 25th anniversary, having been established in 1993.
Vision: Safe water for a healthy nation.
Mission: To provide reliable and safe water supply and sewerage services within our area of operations in Solomon Islands, while working in partnership with the community to plan, deliver and operate infrastructure in a manner that seeks to minimise the social and environmental impacts of our activities.
Solomon Water have boreholes and reservoirs and pump water to Honiara city and three other provincial centres (Tulaghi, Noro and Auki). As the infrastructure is old, there is a lot of maintenance work to keep up supply to these centres.
The company just completed a 30-year strategic plan and are moving into implementation of the plan (with considerable donor support) which is a significant work programme with much change. The Asia Development Bank (ADB) is the main funder for projects, particularly for the next five years, but the donor package will include support from the European Union and the World Bank.
Solomon Water is governed by a board, which reports to the Minister of Finance and Treasury and the Minster of Energy and Mines. There is an executive management team who manage the day-to-day operations of the company.
