CWSA celebrating ‘Water Week’

We are now into water week and the Central Water and Sewerage Authority (CWSA) is celebrating under the theme: “Youth Sensitization on Climate Change”.

In a release, the CWSA said this year, their focus is on enlightening youths on climate change and its effects on weather patterns and the direct impacts on our water supply. The week of March 20 – 24 and March 28th, will see addresses from CWSA chairperson Girlyn Miguel, along with messages from youth leaders from several secondary schools within Kingstown.

The week commenced with a church service at the CWSA headquarters, which was attended by staff members and members of the Board of Directors.

A community clean-up initiative will take place today, Tuesday, March 21, with the spotlight being placed on cleaning a drain in the Roseau community.

Customer Appreciation Day, which will be held tomorrow, March 22, will also see information on the various functions within the CWSA on display and also continued focus on climate education.

A schools’ career fair, which was slated for Thursday, March 23, had to be pushed back to Tuesday, March 28, 2017, because of the Inter Secondary School Sports, as this activity particularly targets third form students of secondary schools. At this activity the various functions and careers within the CWSA will be on display and staff will be on hand to explain and answer questions posed by students.

The CWSA encourages young people and the general public to find out as much as possible on climate change and its effects on our nation and to become advocates of this very important phenomenon.
