MP for Micoud North, Doctor Gale Rigobert, continues to raise concerns about what she describes as the rationing of water to neighbourhoods within her constituency.
“Patience, La Pointe and Mon Repos have been adversely affected by severe water shortages over the last three and a half to four weeks,” Rigobert told the Times, adding that to date there has been no comprehensive plan by WASCO to rectify the situation and provide relief.
She observed that while the water utility in the past few weeks has installed one or two tanks, they are “grossly insufficient” to meet the demands of the affected neighbourhoods.
Rigobert has asked WASCO whether it is possible to erect more tanks and replenish those that were erected some weeks ago
The MP has called on WASCO to advise of the gravity of the problem and in the meantime, bring relief to affected residents who have had to endure severe water shortages over the last month.
Rigobert has expressed her thanks to residents for their patience, and has urged them to be very economical in the use of whatever water they are able to farm for themselves.
She recalled that last week WASCO was forced to shut down the water supply in the Micoud area because of contamination, restoring services on Sunday evening.
However Rigobert disclosed that areas such as Mon Repos, Patience and La Pointe still remain without pipe borne water.
