Officials from the Central Water and Sewerage Authority say most of the eleven water systems are currently back into operation following damage to eight of their eleven systems as a result of the flooding and landslides which occurred on Christmas Eve.
This was revealed by Public Relations and Marketing Assistant at the Central Water and Sewerage Authority, Samantha George, who said that while most of these systems have been reconnected, they are not all fully functional.
Mrs. George said while all of the water systems have been connected, they are currently working to have small lines reconnected, which lead to people’s homes.
She said some areas will have intermittent water connections and she said persons should contact the CWSA if they do not receive any pipe borne water at all.
Meanwhile…..Solid Waste Manager at the Central Water and Sewerage Authority, Winsbert Quow said they have seen quite a lot of furniture and white goods which were washed down by the floods.
He said most of this is as a result of illegal dumping and he is appealing to persons to address this issue of improper garbage disposal.
