CDEMA placedTrinidad and Tobago under drought watch until March 2016.

NEWS GRAPHIC 15In an effort to manage available resources and the threat of drought the Water and Sewage Authority began rationing across the country yesterday.

The Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) placed Trinidad and Tobago as well as other Caribbean countries under drought watch until March 2016.

This was as a result of lower numbers recorded during the 2015 rainy season and a dry season that is expected to be harsher than last year’s.

On Sunday WASA published a pull-out schedule in local newspapers that advised of the dates and times that water will run from the taps until further notice.

The Authority revealed in a statement that its reservoirs were “negatively impacted” by the lower rainfall levels of 2015.

The full schedule is available on the Authority’s website.

The Authority has encouraged citizens to use the existing water supply wisely.
