The Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) has advised members of the public that it is resuming services, which were disrupted by the fire at its Head Office Administrative Building, Farm Road, St Joseph, on
January 5, 2016. This follows the relocation of approximately 600 employees to office areas within and external to the Head Office Complex.
The Head Office Rate Payment Centre was reopened this morning with the stationing of a Mobile Payment Centre in the car park of the Head Office Complex.
Customers desirous of paying their bills or making bill queries, new service and clearance certificate applications, can visit other Rate Payment Centers located at:
Trincity Regional Complex, Golden Grove Road, Arouca; Kew Place, Port-of-Spain; Sorzano Street, Arima;
Market Street, Chaguanas. For bill payments only, customers can visit any commercial bank, Surepay, Western Union, Via, or online
through the Authority’s website – www.wasa.gov.tt
Customers wishing to contact the Authority on service issues are reminded to do so through its Interim
Customer Call Centre.
Meanwhile, there are reports that an unspecified number of senior employees at the Water and Sewerage
Authority (WASA) have been suspended.
This action reportedly came just a week after the fire that damaged the authority’s St Joseph head office
and days after the blaze reignited on Monday morning.
A report on TV 6 last evening stated that one employee in particular was sent home for allegedly going into
the cordoned-off area and taking what was described as “personal documents” from the location.
When contacted by News Power Now this morning, Corporate Communications Manager at WASA Daniel Plenty
refused to give any comment on WASA’s reopening or on the suspension of the Senior Managers.
