TRINIDAD – WASA leak leaves roadway under water

PORT OF SPAIN – Not a drop of rain fell in Claxton Bay on Wednesday, but residents and motorists were left stranded for hours as a result of major flooding.

The flood was caused by the rupture of a Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) pipeline in the area of Claxton Bay Junction on the Southern Main Road.

A WASA official told the Express around 9.35 a.m. that WASA’s south office was contacted and a crew dispatched to the area along the Southern Main Road.

Businessman Neil Seetahal said the water was leaking from the pipeline since last week and on Monday, WASA workers did work in the area.

Seetahal is the owner of a bar in Claxton Bay.
