How can I apply for a New Meter?

To be applicable for a new water meter connection, it is required to have a niche at the border of the relevant property. It can be part of the fence of the property or it can stand alone. WEB will determine the location where the niche has to be built and will indicate this on the site map provided by the client, when requesting a new water meter connection. The niche must be built in accordance to WEB’s specifications. The site map indicating the location of the niche, will be available within 10 days after the request for the connection has been made. At this time, we will also let you know how long it will take to install the connection, once you have confirmed that the niche is ready. It is important to inform WEB when the niche is ready. You can do so by sending a mail to nis@webaruba.com. A map with the required specifications to build the niche is available at the counters of WEB Aruba or can be downloaded here.

All meter applications must be completed at WEB’s main office in Balashi.

Our History

The desalination history of Aruba started more than a hundred years ago with the production of process water around 1903 at the Gold Mining Company (1899-1916).

Even at that early stage, it was obvious that the groundwater and rainwater reserves were insufficient for the physiochemical gold extraction process. The decision was made to desalinate seawater from the nearby Spanish lagoon.
