Chief Secretary Kelvin Charles says Tobago does not have a water problem.

Speaking to Newsday, Charles said unlike Trinidad, Tobago was faring well in the midst of a harsh dry season.

He claimed only one Water and Sewerage Authority's wells in Tobago was not in operation.

"The WASA water wells in Tobago remain robust," he said.

“Our Hillsborough Dam is at 55 per cent capacity. We are producing 11.5 million gallons per day, that is a reduced capacity from 12 million."

However, Charles said Tobago was on a revised water schedule to ensure the island has a continuous water supply.

He said the areas most affected by the reduced water supply are Charlotteville, Speyside and Store Bay Local Road.

Charles said the areas are being supplied truck borne water.
