GWI to check on Paramakatoi water

The Guyana Water Incorporated (GWI) on Tuesday dispatched a team of engineers to Paramakatoi, Region Eight to assess reports about a disruption in water supply on Thursday.

This disruption has reportedly caused a number of areas including government offices to be out of water for several days, GWI said in a press release.

“The Toshao of Paramakatoi has reported that the reservoir that serves the area is leaking and requested GWI’s urgent assistance to solve the problem, since the Village was unsuccessful in attempts to resolve [it],” GWI said.

GWI wishes to assure the hinterland communities that it would provide technical support to ensure that the water supply system is operable.
