The Central Water and Sewerage Authority wishes to advise the Nation that we are AGAIN in the dry season.
The CARIBBEAN CLIMATE OUTLOOK FORUM points to a short-term drought watch up to the end of April 2022, for St Vincent and the Grenadines alongside countries such as Barbados, Western Belize, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Northern Haiti, Northern Puerto Rico, and the USVI.
This may turn into a long-term drought watch for these countries including St Vincent and the Grenadines. According to the report “areas ending up in long term drought by the end of May, may experience lower than usual water levels in large reservoirs, large rivers and groundwater at that time”.
Currently, the Authority has activated its dry weather emergency response plans, which at this time includes:
closely monitoring inflows to its systems and storage tanks
seeking the assistance of the general public in reporting leaks and practicing water conservation
asking the general public to invest in water storage tanks/containers
directing the general public to listen to local radio stations and the CWSA Facebook page to be updated on any planned disruptions in service. Leaks can also be reported at the CWSA emergency line at 457-1445, its WhatsApp number 494-0933 and on the CWSA Facebook page.
