In case you have missed it, the United Nations has declared water to be a basic human right, see here: Source 4 Of course we all know this, but just something more official to hold the government by.
TV6 featured a story where Minister Jack Warner toured a part of the Maraval Reservoir where raw sewage leaked into it.
We are currently in the rainy season - why has the past two weekends from Friday to Monday morning has seen no water coming out of the taps, and again today we are once again without the basic necessity of water?
I can understand rationing water in a drought situation, but when all the water reservoirs are full, what is the excuse? Why are we paying WASA for a service that they are not providing?
Let us not forget too that WHEN you do get water it comes either brown, cloudy or with some kind of sediment. I am deliberating how to purify our water supply without having to go into any heavy expense. I do not believe boiling the water alone is good enough.
It seems that WASA workers are becoming excited about the Police possibly getting a pay hike so WASA workers went on strike for a 20% increase in salary. The argument is that the service that WASA workers provide is an essential service and so they should also get a pay increase.
If anyone is wondering what are the times when water will be available for your area during the month of May 2014 then check this: PDF
Thanks JB for this schedule. I think it's going to be a very dry rainy season. We are now in rainy season and WASA is still rationing water!
Comments: That is just a temporary adjustment until the rains start to come in full force. Off Morne Coco Rd. We getting good water pressure now thanks to the new Scott Farm pump they put in. Thank you WASA or maybe I should really be thanking the people who building those apartments.
