NOTHING illustrates the incompetence of the PNM Government more than the current state of water supply.
And it is not just the fact that the Government has not made an effort to find an engineering solution to the annual destructive floods in various low-lying communities.
It is that many people in our islands are still not having a regular supply of potable water despite that fact that all reservoirs of the Water and Sewerage Authority are filled to the brim.
WASA’s distribution system remains woefully inefficient, and the PNM administration has done precious little to fix the structure.
There is a new official 185-page report on WASA, but, in typical PNM manner, implementation is the problem.
Compare that to the Kamla Persad-Bissessar led Government, which in just five years had moved potable supply from 17 per cent to 74 per cent of the population.
Under the PNM, it is a case of water, water everywhere, but not a drop to drink.
