    The water pipes which were installed in Bodden Town must be the most likely to burst on the planet. Sections have burst so many times in the past 12 months, particularly near the cemetery, that perhaps they should properly install new pipe in the area and be done with it. The disruption to customers, the destruction of the roads, and the disruption of traffic has got to stop.

    I would appreciate it if the Board of Directors of the WA would take a look at what went so badly wrong with the pipe installation in Bodden Town to make sure that this particular problem stops and to make sure that it is not repeated in any other part of the Island.

    Water Authority pleeeeese repair the roads properly. NRA, Govt. please ensure this!

    The WA has, and continues to destroy the roads that the people of Cayman pay for…WA seems to take some pleasure in this destruction. The repairs that they make to the roads are the most inferior repairs ever seen…destroying peoples vehicles, as these "temporary" repairs remain for months and years. NRA, is there nothing you can do to improve this situation. People here pay dearly for the roads and pay dearly for water…only to have the WA come along and destroy the road, then add insult to injury by making inferior repairs that one would expect from children with a shovel.

    Surely Cayman deserves better than this.

      Absolutely correct 17:28. There should be a law here to insist that roads are put back as they were or better after utilities repairs. Such laws exist elsewhere. Water Authority is abysmal in this regard.

    Water Authority! You simply must get this water main problem in BT sorted out once and for all. It’s always causing problems to residents both East and West.
