Water Restoration To WASCO’s Northern Network Delayed


On Wednesday, the Water and Sewerage Company Inc. (WASCO) announced a delay in restoring water supply to sections of the northern network.

A company statement blamed the delay on ongoing dry season conditions.

WASCO disclosed that it had deployed technical teams islandwide to assist communities experiencing supply interruptions.

It said work commenced on May 15, with technicians continuing to make adjustments to augment the water supply where possible.

“Consumers at higher elevations and at the end of the system are advised to expect a delay in the restoration of service to the area,” WASCO said.

The water utility assured customers that its teams were working assiduously to restore the water supply as soon as possible.

It also apologized for the inconvenience and thanked customers for their continued patience. 

On Monday, Saint Lucia’s Cabinet of Ministers approved declaring a water-related emergency.

It was the fourth such declaration in the past ten years, as the country experienced rainfall scarcity and water supply challenges. 

The water-related emergency restricts activities, including using potable water on lawns, pressure washing, mixing concrete, and filling swimming pools.

Anyone who contravenes the measure is liable on summary conviction to fines, imprisonment, or both.
