The villages on the West Coast of Demerara (WCD) that were out of potable water for the past weeks can now breathe a sigh of relief as the Guyana Water Incorporated (GWI) restored the provision of this commodity on Saturday.The residents had been without running water as a result of low power provided by the Guyana Power and Light Inc (GPL).As a result, residents were forced to jog water from long distances. Some were forced to purchase water, while other had to do without that commodity.A fire truck from the Guyana Fire Service (GFS) had to come in and supply the affected villages, such as De Kendren and Meten-Meer-Zorg, with water.However, the residents are now appreciative of the work put in to have the water restored by the Guyana Water Incorporated (GWI).“They came and they really did their work after they found out about the situation, because I spoke to a representative personally, who tell me what the work entailed to having the water running again; and I am glad, because we were really struggling. Thanks, God,” one resident expressed.Another said, “The water pressure is high too; so whatever they do, I glad, because I was fed-up. But I am glad that we ain’t have to worry about that every morning now; it was stressful”.Meanwhile, some villages on the East Coast of Demerara are still without water. The GWI has not reached out to those residents, and as such, they are very much frustrated. Those villages that are affected are Plaisance, Better Hope, Ogle and Goedverwagting.
