For the second time in as many weeks, vandals have struck at a Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) facility, this time the Bennett Storage Tank located off John Field Road, Bennett Village. The perpetrators removed approximately 80 feet of 8 inch diameter steel pipe that connects the tank to the distribution system, as well as the guard rail around the top of the tank, thereby rendering the facility inoperable.

This latest incident will impact the water supply to customers in Bennett Village, Los Bajos and environs as the Authority works to replace the stolen pipeline and repair damages to the facility by April 16, 2021.

On Monday April 5, 2021, the electrical system at the Authority’s Fyzabad Well No. 8 was also vandalized and parts removed, affecting the supply of water to customers in Fyzabad.

Members of the public are again encouraged to report all acts of vandalism or suspicious activity they observe at the Authority's installations to the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) or the Authority’s Customer Call Centre toll free at 800-4420/4426.

The Authority apologises for the inconvenience and thanks customers for their patience and understanding.
