WASA Reviewing The Act Which Governs It

WASA is reviewing the act which governs its operations including fines for various illegal practices that undermine the utility’s ability to provide services to the citizens of Trinidad and Tobago.

By the end of 2024 it is expected the process will be completed.

Public Utilities Minister, Marvin Gonzales, made the disclosure in the Senate on Friday.

He made the remarks during his response to a question posed to him with respect to WASA’s identification of multiple million-dollar water trucking scams nationwide.

The minister was asked to advise whether the $750 fine associated with the illegal extraction, distribution and sale of WASA’s water will be increased to dissuade potential perpetrators of such crimes.
