In 2012, WASA embarked on the Adopt a River Programme aimed at:
– Increasing awareness towards water issues in Trinidad and Tobago especially in schools, communities, the public and private sector as well as government agencies; all of whom use our water resources.
– Allows interested parties to adopt a particular river or any part thereof with the aim of improving its status over a 1 year period.
On this page you are introduced to some of our current adopters and can get an idea as to some of the work they have been doing in various watersheds in Trinidad and Tobago.
1. Government Agencies can participate in the Adopt a River programme by providing training and development to both current and perspective adopters. Informational seminars on the resources available to adopters is an excellent place to start.
2. Corporate Entities can participate in the Adopt a River programme through sponsorship activities and monetary donations to any of our NGOs or Community Groups. The development of partnerships with any of these groups is also an option that can be explored.
