UPDATE: Water supply to the North (December 28)

The water company (WASCO) is reporting that water flow to the north of the island has begun with many domestic and commercial consumers already receiving.

The supply strength will only get stronger as the day moves on but they are cautioning of the need to be mindful that other areas also need to be supplied so the flow may be interrupted at some point.

  1. There is no denying the fact that over the years WASCO’s service to the public is sub-standard and they should be held accountable for providing such poor service to a paying public. However, we the people and citizens of this land must begin to prioritize a lot better. I will not say every house should have a water tank because I am well aware that not every household can afford it, but the fact is many people can but for some reason unknown to me they refuse too. After hurricane Tomas having a water tank should have been a priority. While it would not solve all the water problems it would certainly bring a level comfort. People spending well over a hundred thousand dollars on a vehicle but they do not have a water-tank at home? Others buy thousand dollar goal chains and other material things like the huge 50 inch television sets but refuse to invest in a most important basic need? Maybe this time around we will decide to pay more attention on the more important things in life.

  3. I know it must be no easy job in trying to restore water around the island amid all this pressure and circumstances. Please don't forget the people of Balata and Entrepot. Thankfully, there has been some rain and we've used that for our domestic needs, but it hasn't rained yet today (Sunday) and some of us have work tonight and tomorrow morning. I hope we can get water soon.

  4. And it's amazing how everything always ends up being polictical in slu. like other communities call and report to SNO and other news broadcasters what's happening in your area. Stop being so stupid ignorant and provide some helpful comments. In the meanwhile collect some rain water to do some washing . It's only been 5 days without water . WASCO has been appealing for years for people to COLLECT water!! We leave in a region prone to natural disasters that will affect water supplies .

    • I am sure that you have already gotten water or have some way of getting some that is why you talking so. WASCO is incompetent and promises to deliver services which they cannot whether in times of crises or on any normal day!!! WASCO needs to get their act together!!! At the very least, they need to come straight and say that they do not know when water will be restored instead of lying and giving false information and hope. Do you know what it is to have children with no water? We have every right to complain....chupse

  6. Never amazes me that the South, ESPECIALLY Laborie, is always forgotten about. With the reporting of the rain and flooding, Laborie only received one or two mentions, even though its pretty bad down there. This has been ongoing for years. I guess everything which happens in St. Lucia only takes place in the North. Don't ask for the lousy District Rep's and other politicians from Laborie, including but not limited to Velon John, Alva JnBaptiste, your PM, they know Laborie only when they need votes to get into and remain in office. Laborie people have suffered enough. I implore Laborians in the next election to vote for the best candidate who will serve the people of Laborie from the heart, for the love of Laborie, not for their wallets or any political gains.

  9. WASCO for some reason is not making much mention of the rural communities. SNO, why don't you ask them to provide an update for the Vieux Fort north area, desruisseaux and other communities. Thank you and looking forward to reading this update very soon
