UPDATE FROM WASCO

Here’s the latest update on the water supply from the Water and Sewerage Company, Inc. (WASCO).

Water is flowing to the north, but the pressure is very low at present. We have a supply as far as the Landings at the foot of Cap Estate, however, the pressure is now high enough to turn on the pumps to Cap Estate.

We have our Morne and Ciceron pumps on so we can fill the tanks on the Morne, Bocage, Morne Du Don and Carielle. When these tanks are filled, we can begin to supply the Morne, Goodlands, Balata, Sunbilt, Morne du Don, Bocage, Carielle and other areas which get fed from those tanks.

The Toucousson system which supplies parts of Choiseul will be back on today. La Fargue, Reunion, Choiseul Village, and other areas in that vicinity will receive a supply shortly.

We should get a full report for Mon Repos, Patience, Micoud north, etc just after midday today.

Work is continuing in Vieux Fort. The crews have reached the intake and are clearing it so that Vieux Fort town can receive a supply. In the meantime, water is being trucked to the area.

Trucking is continuing for Anse la Raye and Canaries as a lot more work needs to be done on those systems.

The Bexon pump is on; Sarrot has begun getting water so Marigot should get a supply shortly. The pump at Barre Denis is being evaluated, but once the problems with it are rectified, we can begin pumping water to Barre Denis, Chopin, La Croix, Ti Colon and other communities in that area.

Delcer, Saltibus, Soufriere and Dennery are up and running.

This is where we are right now.

  8. I agree proud southerner, and to date I have not seen a water truck in the vieux fort area. Further to that Wasco needs to be more specific with the updates, how much longer must we wait for a supply of water - one hour, two hours, two days or till the end of the week. Better service is required from the company.

  12. While I understand the magnitude of what transpired Christmas Eve. Government has to urgently address the way in which water is being supplied to Vieux-Fort, Laborie and evirons. The system in the south is outdated and the slightest rain affects the supply of water. They claim water is being trucked to VF and environs I have yet to see a truck.
