The Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) is warning customers to be careful of people posing as WASA personnel, who do not display identification badges.
This follows allegations of people posing as WASA workers to commit robbery and other crimes.
WASA issued the following statement today:
One man has been held by police in relation to allegations of impersonating a WASA worker before commiting acts of robbery.
Information is still sketchy but we've been told that the man has been pretending to be conducting surveys on behalf of WASA before robbing people who allow him into their compounds.
The Water and Sewage Authority is currently investigating a claim on social media that criminals are posing as WASA employees to get access to private residences for the purpose of robbing them.
WASA Communications Manager Daniel Plenty says the authority is looking into the claims but is asking the public to come forward with any information as to where the alleged instances have happened.
The allegation went viral on instant messaging platform, What's App.
In the recording, a male voice is heard referring to an incident he said happened not far from where he was.
A fire broke out at WASA's headquarters in St. Joseph today.
According to our sources, the blaze began in the registry department on the second floor of the main administration building.
CNC3 understands the blaze was contained to the second floor which also houses the corporate communications and health and safety departments.
Fire officials say the blaze began shortly before five this afternoon.
We are told that the I-T department and data centre are located on the third floor directly above the blaze.
At 11:20 a.m. today - Thursday 19th November 2015, operations at the Caroni Water Treatment Plant, Piarco, were stopped when an oil like substance was observed in the Caroni River, above the raw water intake.
A chlorine leak at WASA's Paramin Base Station has forced the evacuation of some residents of Woodbine Gardens, Maraval.
WASA says the evacuation was precautionary and the authority explains that within minutes of receiving the call at seven o'clock this morning, it was able to contain the leak.
WASA's Communications Manager Daniel Plenty says residents have since been given the all clear to return to their homes.
