WASA, THA address 'Arnos Vale' concerns

The Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) and members of the Tobago House of Assembly's (THA) Department of Infrastructure and Public Utilities have met to address concerns about the Arnos Vale water pipeline project.

In a statement yesterday, WASA said the $9 million project will provide a 24-hour, seven days a week service to almost 950 residents and other consumers along the Arnos Vale Road, Ebo Gully and other parts of Les Coteaux.

WASA supplied information as requested by the Department in support of continuing the project.

In the interim, work continues on the first phase of the project.

This first phase involves 600 metres of water pipelines.

The Arnos Vale Pipeline Installation Project forms part of an overall programme of works scheduled to be carried out by WASA in Tobago, the Authority said.

The projects will also serve to generate new jobs, benefitting the local economy, it added.
