The Water and Sewerage Authority (the Authority) is advising customers and the general public that in keeping with its 2022 Dry Season Water Supply Management Plan, effective Midnight on Tuesday 1st March, until 30th June 2022, the use of hosepipes and any similar apparatus for the purpose of, among other things, watering private gardens and/or washing private motor cars, will be prohibited in accordance with the Water and Sewerage Act Chapter 54:40 of the Laws of Trinidad and Tobago (the "Act").
Customers and the general public are further notified that, under the Act, the Authority has the responsibility for administering the supply of water and promoting the conservation and proper use of water resources.
In particular, the Act provides for the following:
The Authority states that, “Customers and the general public should note that upon the production of authenticated documents, authorized Officers of the Authority have the general power to enter any premises supplied with water at all reasonable hours in order to examine if there is any waste or misuse of such water.”
Any person who breaches this prohibition is liable to a fine upon summary conviction. The Authority also notes that there will be increased patrols to ensure compliance with this ban.
The Authority asks that the public complies with this prohibition and it says it “looks forward to your co-operation.”
