SAN JUAN – The Water and Sewerage Authority of Trinidad and Tobago announced Wednesday that it will impose restrictions on water use as the twin-island nation enters the dry season.
Starting Friday, residents will not be permitted to use hosepipes or any similar apparatus for the purpose of watering private lawns and washing private cars, WASA said in a statement.
The use of sprinklers, pressure washers, as well as decorative fountains and waterfalls may also be subject to a fine upon summary conviction.
“The Authority has the responsibility for administering the supply of water and promoting the conservation and proper use of water resources,” WASA said.
In 2015, several Caribbean islands experienced dramatic drought conditions.
