“The wors­en­ing con­di­tions of the af­fect­ed road­ways pose a threat and haz­ard to the res­i­dents with­in the area and the Chair­man and Coun­cil are urg­ing WASA to con­duct these re­pairs as soon as pos­si­ble,” stat­ed a re­lease is­sued by the Coun­cil.

The Coun­cil has iden­ti­fied some 26 road­ways through­out the Princes Town re­gion, which they say are af­fect­ed by leak­ing WASA lines.

“The Coun­cil is plead­ing with WASA to re­pair these leaks and re­store the road­way to their orig­i­nal con­di­tion,” the re­lease said.
