contractor in relation to the construction of a plant to treat its own discharges.

Who cares? WASA’s empty promises.

Almost one year after completion, in the middle of a severe drought a $25 million Water Treatment Plant installed at Cumuto remains empty.

The two massive tanks were installed to treat and distribute four million gallons of water per day—to users in Cumuto and environs—with supplies from wells. However, a Sunday Guardian investigation reveals that to date, sinking of the wells, which was supposed to supply the tanks with water, has come to a halt. The project, which began in June of 2006 and was expected to take 15 months to be done, is yet to be completed. The treatment plant was built by Uem Gem Ltd, while another company was responsible for sinking the wells.

Asked if the plant was operative, one worker who requested anonymity replied: “There is no water so obviously the plant cannot operate. If there is no water the plant cannot work.” The handful of residents in the community believe their complaints for water have fallen on deaf ears.

Trinidad & Tobago: Govt planning to restructure Water and Sewerage Authority

The government of Trinidad & Tobago has appointed a special committee to coordinate the restructuring of the Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA). […] The operation aims to remove wastewater management from WASA’s responsibility and transfer it to the Solid Waste Management Company (SWMCOL). In turn, SWMCOL would hand over management of the community environmental protection and enhancement program, which is expected to be administered by a company established specifically for that purpose.
