WASA Warns Of Private Trucks Supplying Unsafe And Untreated Water

The Water and Sewerage Authority warns citizens to be aware of private water trucks which have been supplying customers with unsafe and untreated water in South Western Trinidad.

WASA says it received reports of private water trucks filling from the washout of the authority’s wellfields, particularly the Siparia, Scotts Road and Morne Diablo well fields.

The warning comes amid the revelation recently  by the Public Utilities Minister Marvin Gonzales of a multi-million-dollar water- trucking racket in Morne Diablo.

The utility said increased security patrols at its wellfields and is reviewing the facilities’ security infrastructure.

It advised anyone who observes these practices or has information to call its security department at 662-2318.

All authorised water delivery trucks have the authority’s logo and the service is freely available on request via its WASA services app, customer portal or by contacting the toll-free call centre at 800-4420/26.
