A resident of Wellington Road, Debe, Sterling Chattergoon, 40, yesterday jumped inside a six-foot hole at the side of the road near his home in order to demonstrate its depth and danger.
Chattergoon told Newsday that the Water and Sewerage Authority’s main pipeline burst several weeks ago and water has been flowing, such that it undermined the road and carved a six-foot deep hole. “This water has been running for many weeks now and WASA ignores it every time they pass by,” Chattergoon said.
As a result, the residents have been left with a low water-supply. Chattergoon said that the roadway near the hole is deteriorating daily and he, like other residents, fear that it will give way and they will then be without water and without a proper road as well, with a hole on the road, which someone can easily fall into.
