Recently, the Minister of Public Utilities visited Beckles Lane in Arima, where a well was recently drilled to improve the water supply in the area.

As the Minister of Public Utilities, I had the task to dig deep and understand some of the issues that are affecting the performance of the state company that is responsible for managing Water.

Yesterday, I was accompanied by a small team to Beckles Lane, Arima to view a recently drilled well that will improve the water supply in the area.

As simple as they are, wells are extremely important aspect in water distribution. They come in very handy when surface water becomes scarce and are unable to effectively supply water to areas that are not connected to the main water supply.

As the Minister of Public Utilities, I will continue to do whatever it takes to improve water supply throughout Trinidad and Tobago using all the various techniques.

The proposed Matelot/Grand Riviere Project has the main objective of ensuring a daily supply of potable water to these areas.

How can it be a merry Christmas when San Juan/Barataria has NO WATER on Christmas eve???!!!! Water is usually taken on a Tuesday and Thursday and with Christmas Day being a Thursday, does this mean no water tomorrow as well?? Truly disgusting the state of affairs in this country!!! No washing of hands on a Tuesday and Thursday for the pandemic? When will we actually have something as critical as water available to us in regular supply? An island--we are surrounded by water yet the taps run dry... It's disappointing, the foolishness we as a people accept as normal..
Why is that T&Tec couva branch has supervisors taking bribe to put down unauthorized poles ?
I usually try to post positivite and uplifting things on my page, however I am totally frustrated with WASA for the entire year. It takes a while for me to reach this point. I am happy your reservoir levels are good at this time, however, there seems to be water everywhere except in my taps. Yesterday was one month since I had water in my taps. I usually am very proactive and pay my bill one year upfront because it is convenient for me. My family and I have suffered tremendously this year for water in the Freeport area. My pump was off for most of the year and I used gravity flow because I just did not have water in my taps because the pressure was extremely low in our area and was not fulling our tanks. Numerours meetings with the MP, Councillor and your area supervisor, we even made many recommendations and suggestions to WASA, all proved futile. Schedule or no schedule there was very little water this year for the Freeport residents. I have made over forty requests for a truck bourne water supply and to date have not received any. I do have a three work orders but was not one of the fortunate ones to receive any water via truck. I did get calls on two occassions regarding a truck bourne supply after I purchased water from a private contractor. WASA, the lifeline that is water was deprived us by you for the majority of this year thus far. We berely had water for our day to day activities thanks to you. I hope the situation changes for the new year but I do not anticipate such. Please do not tell me bout aging infrastructure etc because I have been hearing that since I was a little boy.
No water for a month in Nadira Gardens, Freeport. When are you going to get serious with WASA?

WE NEED WATER IN PINTO ROAD ARIMA PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE.........WATER IS NEEDED....WE CANNOT BE SANITIZED WITHOUT WATER.
Being a responsible citizen accounts for nothing. My neighbour and I have reported this leak for months to WASA, the Diego Martin Regional Corporation, the Councillor Catherine Mendez, the Chairman of DMRC Sigler Jack and yet...no response. We have multiple leaks on our Street - no response. Neighbours are asking what I'm doing as if I'm the Minister of Public Utilities. I am not. Neighbours are asking me if I'm going to call TV6 or CNC...no I'm not. I'm just FED UP with a country where you do the right thing and constantly end up with nothing!
I congratulate the honourable Minister of Public Utilities. I know he will take his job seriously so i am bringing a serious issue to him. I live at Lynton Gardens Ph1 off the Arima Old Rd. D'abadie. For the last couple of years people in my area which includes Lynton Gardens Ph2, parts of the Arima Old Rd, Cleaver Rd receive a pipe borne sparingly. When a French Engineer one Mr Patrice was the Ops Manager at Wasa, we had a regular supply. I had informed him about about the seroius problems we had when sometimes for three weeks we had no water. We either had to get a truck supply from Wasa and when that was not so we had to purchase it. The problem was that we get our supply from the Subero St. Pumping Station and there were two pumps operating. Whenever one pump breaks down we hadno water, sometimes for weeks. Mind you we get water only at nights, so we must have tanks and pumps. What Mr. Patrice did was to install three pumps so when one breaks down the other one takes over so we are facilitated. Since the departure of Mr. Patrice we have gone back to two pumps system because whenever we dont get water Wasa CSR says pump breaks down. Our supply is Monday and Friday nights.The last time we had water was Friday 14August night. Hope you csn get Wasa employees to re-implement the three pump system and ease our suffering. Thank you
Its seems as though the staff at ttpost cannit handle the workload. I've been trying to follow up on a cheque that was sent out quite a while. Telling me the driver would deliver and she cant say when. What utter rubbish if you not delivering today leave the cheque at the office I can collect myself. Come on ttpost get real. Minister of public utilities needs to investigate the standards here. Somebody need to look into ttpost operations.
Restricting the water supply, yet still gallons are wasted. Because of this leak the driveway has been compromised. Location: #66 Paradise Lane, Guanapo Arima.
When is this country going to seriously start thinking about the future generations and start putting infrastructure in place? Things like more dams, additional desal plants or even servicing the present system. Our main pipelines throughout the country needs replacement but because the majority of the country don't know or don't want to know, wasa and the government pretending that the problem doesn't exist. Why don't wasa show the public what a piece of existing pipeline looks like when it's dug up? Y'all keep putting it off until Trinidad and Tobago reaches where people are going to really suffer for water...... if the country believes its bad now.......... give it a few more years. I'm speaking about things I've seen.
