Please stop this leak

More than 18 months ago, I sought the assistance of WASA (Water and Sewerage Authority), via this medium, to look into a constant leak running across the road from a property in my area for more than four years.

WASA's Ellen Lewis replied, via this same channel, and said the property was indeed not abandoned and was, in fact, a juice-producing factory (the Health Department needs to look into), and WASA had no jurisdiction there as it is private property.

Therein lies the conundrum. If all water in Trinidad and Tobago belongs to WASA, how can I be told WASA has no say when water is running across a public street and causing erosion to an almost non-existent drain. This needs to stop.

If WASA cannot get the property owner to improve his drainage, please let me know who can?
