Mayaro MP Rushton Paray is calling on the Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) to “ease the burden” of Mayaro residents, who have not had a reliable water supply for the past month.
In a media release today, Paray said the water disruption is adversely affecting the “homes of families, organizations hosting cultural events within the communities, and most importantly businesses who expend exorbitant amount of fees to the relevant authority.”
“WASA must be more pre-emptive and communicate more effectively with the constituents when there is an existing issue of supply, be it mechanical or workforce.”
He said the MP’s office has been “bombarded with phone calls, in addition to numerous complaints about the inadequate supply of water in respective areas.”
He said the affected areas include St Ann’s Mayaro, Mafeking Village, Navet, Tabaquite Road, Union, Poole, Ecclesville; inclusive of Bangladesh, Legendre and Mahabalsingh.
A WASA official said he was unaware of the situation and promised to investigate the matter.
