    There we go again, a bit of rainfall and this company isn’t able to supply any water at all or only very low pressure. This company is useless!!!

    “….areas experiencing low water pressure or no water supply which is due to heavy rainfall.”
    Knowing that we are prone to heavy rain, why doesn’t Dowasco build systems that can function despite heavy rain. I have come to the conclusion that these institutions treat these essential service more as a convenience than an essential service.
    I can’t count the number of times I have read Dowasco’s apologies. How about building robustness into your infrastructure?
    I have lived in North America for 40 years and not once have I ever lacked running water. That is not to suggest Dominica is the same as North America, but utilities here treat these services a lot more seriously than do those in the Caribbean.
