Inauguration of Eau Coulée Post Office

The Posts and Telegraphs Department of Mauritius released on 8 February 1991 a Special Cover to mark the inauguration of Eau Coulée Post Office.


Eau Coulée is a locality of the town of Curepipe. It lies in the centre of the island in the Plaine Wilhems District.

Prior to 1991, no post office serviced Eau Coulée. If I am not mistaken, the closest Post Office was that of Curepipe Road, now closed.

Four Post Offices currently service Curepipe: Curepipe, Eau Coulée, Floréal, and Forest Side.
