The Water and Sewerage Authority has launched a formal investigation into the delivery of a truck-borne water supply for a car wash event in Calvary, Arima, on October 28th.

At a meeting of the Arima Borough Council on Tuesday, Arima Mayor Lisa Morris-Julian expressed outrage that residents in the area have been without water for three weeks, but a bar in Calvary Hill hosted a car wash with a supply from a WASA truck.

WASA says following a preliminary investigation, it determined that established procedures for requesting and delivery of the truck-borne supply were not followed.

The Authority says it is currently undertaking a formal investigation and based on the findings, appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.

WASA apologised to its customers in Calvary and other parts of Arima for the inconsistent pipe-borne water supply over the last three weeks.

The Authority said recent heavy rainfall resulted in turbid river conditions at the Guanapo Water Treatment Plant (WTP), but assured that every effort is being made to regularise the pipe-borne water supply.
