He said, “They are suffering, Icacos is suffering, Fullerton is suffering and other areas are suffering and WASA administration is not providing that service in terms of that proper distribution ,well rehabilitation, plant upgrade and other repairs to the infrastructure for proper water supply.

Resident June Ramnarine said, “We have a water plant, we not even getting water, our own water. It does go somewhere else. We taking water from Chatham. Why is this? And Chatham water is stink, it smells bad.”


She called on Gonzales to hold his managers accountable.
