WASCO Announces Northern Section System Shutdown


The Water and Sewerage Company Inc. (WASCO) wishes to inform the public that there will be a shutdown of the northern section of the network on Monday December 18, 2023 to facilitate repair works on the raw water line.

All consumers who are supplied from the John Compton Dam, Millet to Cap Estate, will experience an interruption from 6:00 AM.

Upon completion of repairs, all efforts will be made to have the supply of water restored within 24 hours.

Please note that customers will gradually receive a supply of water as the network returns to normalcy.

Customers at higher elevations and those at the end of the service line will experience a delay as the system recharges.

WASCO apologizes to its customers for this interruption and for the inconvenience caused.

  1. So wasco does have the capacity and ability and the know how’s to inform its customers ahead of PLANNED disruptions! I guess it’s Christmas so nuff surprises.

  2. Its already off here in Marigot – nothing unusual in that, 20 years plus, same old, same old. Useless company.

  3. Thanks for the early notice, WASCO. Is there new management? Seems so. Many times in the past there was no early warning given to the public — instead, it used to be that people would simply notice that there is no water in their pipes — and then, when they call WASCO, THEY WOULD BE TOLD THAT THERE IS REPAIR WORK GOING ON ON A SUPPLY MAIN, AND “WHEN IT IS DONE YOU WILL EVENTUALLY GET WATER ONCE AGAIN!” So. Thanks for the improvement in how you treat some of your customers.

    Merry Christmas, WASCO!

  4. They will always inform the north that’s where they hotels and tourist are other places too low class .

  5. I would be more thankful for the early notice if they took it on the day mentioned not the day before.

  6. Awah for this company ee. This wasco has had too much leeway….their communications is biased af. People in dennery never ever ever ever see such notifications….people in Micoud same. But yes…this one will affect the north so they go all out. That NURC or whatever they call themselves are a waste of time….it’s time to set wasco straight.

  7. Not sure how we are supposed to prepare for the water disruption when there is no water in the days leading up and we can’t wash clothes or store water but ok Wasco.

  8. Yeah boy WasteCo y’all operating in the future … water was already gone before noon yesterday now let’s see how long it takes to restore the supply.
