WASA had promised an improvement to the supply of water to a 24/7 for the residents in the area. However, even with the new pipes laid, residents have been complaining bitterly about not getting a regular supply of water. Tobago News counted about half a dozen leaks that had been repaired by WASA during a drive by in the area. A crew, which was observed performing repair works on one of the leaks, was questioned about the situation. “It was a Trinidad-based contractor that laid these pipes,” quipped one worker. When Tobago News questioned a senior WASA official about the leaks in the Arnos Vale pipes, he admitted that due to the heavy pressure of the water, they had been experiencing a few leaks on the new pipe lines. When told about the leaking pipelines WASA Commissioner Hewlett Waldron expressed surprise at this development. “Nobody told me that the new pipe lines at Arnos Vale were leaking,” he asserted. “I would have to do a field visit to see for myself,” declared Waldron.
