34 years and still without water
Have the Government and WASA forgotten to run water lines in Ghamoo Trace in Mendez, Siparia? Since I was a little girl growing up to today—I am 34 years of age—we have been using rain water. There has never been a pipe-borne supply so that should tell you something—that we have been forgotten in this village by the PNM and now the PP Govern-ment.
The only time we receive a truck-borne supply is in the dry season and we are limited to one tank of water a week. Why hasn’t WASA run water lines in of our trace? What is the problem? For too long we have been given the runaround. We need answers now. I have a friend in another village with two traces. One trace only has one house to the end of it and the other trace has two houses. Yet they have pipe-borne water. In our village there are about 20 houses but we have to depend on rain water. WASA, please run some pipe and give us water before I am an old woman.
