These have the capacity to pump between 30,000 and 35,000 gallons of water per minute.Due to the present situation in Region Four, a multi-million hydro-flow pump that was stationed at the Hydraulics Division at Whim was loaned to the National Drainage and Irrigation Authority (NDIA) until the water recedes in those areas.The mobile standby pump was given to East Berbice Corentyne to use in the event of floods and to assist in draining any affected area.
