Service - Our Responsibility
Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) was established by an Act of Parliament in 1965 to manage the water and sewerage sector of Trinidad and Tobago. An essential component of this mandate is the delivery of a safe, reliable and efficient water supply to satisfy the demand of all sectors of the economy.
Whilst over the ensuing years there has been a steady increase in demand, there has not been the commensurate investment in infrastructure and the identification of alternative sources of supply, specifically targeting the industrial and agricultural sectors.
WASA's future operations must be viewed in the broader context of Government's seven (7) pillars of sustainable development. Inherent in this is the requirement for the population to have access to a reliable and high quality water supply on a 24/7 basis. However in the immediate term, Government has set the baseline at 24/2.
