A memorandum of agreement (MOA) for a waste water treatment plant for southwest Tobago was signed on September 5 that will see the Mt Pleasant Credit Union handing over its facility at the Bon Accord Estate for upgrading by the Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA).

In exchange for its waste water treatment plant, the Mt Pleasant Credit Union has acquired lands at Courland Estate, the THA Information Department announced via its daily newsletter. It also said that WASA will maintain and expand the pond in accordance with the MOA.

The release said Charles was at the meeting to witness the signing after helping to negotiate the deal.

“This ceremony is a significant and symbolic one in that it’s a true partnership between the public service, the private sector and Water and Sewage Authority,” the release reported Sandy saying, after he signed the agreement.

“WASA is going to own the lands and is going to execute work to be done,” said WASA Chairman Romney Thomas.

“The waste water stabilisation pond, which was already in use, we will now acquire it and develop it to meet the needs of various catchment areas that are serviced,” he added.
