The Water and Sewerage Authority (the Authority) has launched an Amnesty Programme, running for the period Monday December 3rd, 2018 to Thursday February 28th, 2019.

The Amnesty will allow customers and persons with illegal water connections to regularize their status, thus avoiding disconnection, penalties and the possibility of legal action in accordance with the Water and Sewerage Act.

The Amnesty will apply specifically to customers/persons falling into any of the following categories:

Under the Water and Sewerage Act, persons with illegal connections, unregistered swimming pools and who operate a VAT-registered business but maintain a status as a residential customer, can face a one-year retroactive charge or disconnection of their service. However, during the three-month period of the Amnesty, these charges, as well as the Authority’s right to disconnect will be waived.

Customers/persons in the above categories are encouraged to regularize their status by visiting any of the Authority’s Customer Service Centres located throughout Trinidad and Tobago. Persons who fail to take advantage of this Amnesty will face disconnection of their service, as well as the imposition of penalties and any other legal recourse available to the Authority.
