Lead Contamination

WASA says its water is safe to drink amid lead-contamination fears

The Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) is seeking to assure customers and the general public that the water it produces meets and exceeds guidelines set by the World Health Organisation (WHO) for potable or drinking water quality.

This comes following statements reportedly made during the sitting of the Parliament’s Public Accounts Enterprises Committee on Wednesday 15th February 2017, which raised issues of alleged lead contamination at the Caroni Water Treatment Plant in particular.
