On Saturday, March 2, The Water and Sewerage Company Inc. (WASCO) received reports of damaged meters in the Babonneau area.

Following further investigation, it was discovered that approximately 27 meters from La Croix to Garrand were vandalized.

WASCO technicians were immediately dispatched to attend to the severed connections and to restore service to affected consumers.

WASCO strongly condemns any act of vandalism or defacement of the company’s assets.

We encourage consumers to promptly report any acts of vandalism to the nearest police station or by contacting WASCO’s offices at 457-3958, 457-3960 or 451-9812.
