Hinds says water levels at dams “below average”

Newly minted Public Utilities Minister Fitzgerald Hinds said the water levels at the nation’s reservoirs are well below average.

Hinds was speaking in the Senate on Tuesday, as he responded to an urgent question posed to him by Opposition Senator Wade Mark about a lack of water supply to residents in the Penal/Debe region.

Hinds said that customers living in certain areas are having problems with getting water.

He said the Caroni Waste Water Treatment Plant, which usually serves the Penal/Debe region, has experienced a reduction in the gallons of water it produces per day.

The Water and Sewage Authority (WASA) posted a video to its facebook page showing the water levels at their reservoirs.
