200 Residents of Erin left in the dark as trees fall on power lines

by | Jan 14, 2015

power linesResidents of Erin were literally in the dark yesterday, this as fallen trees, brought down during their protest action on Monday,

affected power lines in the area.
Residents said they lost power yesterday, leading to an investigation by the Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Commission which

resulted in the finding that trees that were cut down by residents to block roads during protest action, brought down power lines in a

swampy area.
The utility has explained that a contractor may have to be hired to restore the supply of electricity, noting that as a result of the

conditions in the swamp, T&TEC would have difficulty maneuvering in the swampy area.
It was on Monday that some 200 residents between Siparia and Erin blocked roads with debris , calling on the Water and Sewage

Authority and the Minister of Public Utilities to step in and correct what they coined the poor workmanship of those responsible for

repaving the roadway, following repair works done by WASA.
In an interview with NewsPower Now yesterday, WASA’s Assistant Manager of corporate communications, Daniel Plenty assured that

the utility would address the matter.
