Across the country, residents complain that APUA is not honouring its own water schedule
Outrage continues to mount from residents who are fed-up with the water situation.
In addition to not getting water on a regular basis, they complain that the daily schedule put out by the Antigua Public Utilities Authority (APUA) is not being followed.
A Piggotts resident says the timeline given is never right. According to the Sunday schedule, her village should have received water from 5 a.m. to 2 p.m. However, she says, the water came on after 2 a.m. and was off by 11 a.m.
A Yorks woman says her water was scheduled to be on from 5 a.m. to 1 p.m., but it never came on as stated.
Leader of the Opposition Jamale Pringle says residents in the All Saints East and St. Luke constituency are also fed up with the situation.
What is especially galling, he says, is that the Baldwin Spencer Administration had installed water-storage tanks – and, so many years later, they are still not connected to the water-distribution system.
Pringle says his constituents are still struggling to understand why the Browne Administration has these storage tanks in place and has not commissioned them.
