WASCO announces planned water interruption Wednesday

Residents in Castries are being advised to store as much water as possible ahead of a planned interruption in the water supply.

The Water and Sewerage Company (WASCO) announced that areas from Cul de Sac through to Cap Estate will be without water from five o’clock in the morning Wednesday.

Authorities say while the water supply should be restored by Wednesday later in the evening, some areas may not receive water until Thursday morning.

WASCO Customer Service Manager Zilta George Leslie appealed for patience from the public.

“…It may take some time for the pressures to build up, especially in areas of high elevation,” George-Leslie said. “So because of this we’re asking you to bear with us and we’re asking you to store as much water as possible for that period of time.”

WASCO was also forced to shut down water Monday night to facilitate the repair of a damaged line.

Water Services Manager, Jim King said WASCO discovered a severe leak on one of its lines that needed urgent attention during routine maintenance works on the line running from the John Compton Dam to the Ciceron treatment plant.

Residents of Babonneau who receive water from the Hill 20 system will not be affected.

    That is all we ask give us enough warning, so we can prepare. Water is a necessary commodity that we need on a daily basis. When the fishes do not have water they die, far less human beings. GOD created water to cool off the body temperature, so just imagine.
