PRESS RELEASE – Once again, the Water & Sewerage Company Inc. (WASCO) regrets to inform the residents of Micoud and environs that their supply of water has been shut-down due to having found dead fish in its raw water monitoring pond at the Micoud Treatment Plant.
This is the second time in the month that this situation has developed.
This development has been reported to the Water Resource Management Agency (WRMA) and the Environmental Health Branch (EHB) of the Ministry of Health and they have been requested to conduct comprehensive investigations and testing of the raw water source for the cause or causes which may be killing the fish.
A further advisory with respect to the water supply will be issued shortly.
If anyone has information relating to any malpractices in the river course, they are asked to report it to the Police, the Water Resource Management Agency, the Environmental Health Branch or WASCO.
