Illegal water supply system closed

AqualectraWILLEMSTAD – Once again the employees of the utility company Aqualectra had to close an illegal water supply system in the Souax neighborhood, Kaya Schilling to be precise. The residents of the respective houses were fined.

In addition, they have to go to an Aqualectra office to make payment arrangements for the used water. Only then can they again - and legally – be connected to the water system. Aqualectra warns all those that are illegally connected to their water system to disconnect this and make arrangements to get connected legally.

Furthermore, the utility company will hold consultations with the Public Prosecution and other affected companies, which were victims of copper theft, such as the oil refinery. Last Friday, the owner of the scrap company in Zeelandia was arrested for the purchasing of stolen goods. He was released yesterday. The manager of his company, the 32 year old Dominican was arrested right before the owner of the company was released.

The maximum penalty for purchasing these stolen goods is 6 years in prison or fines of up to 100,000 guilders.
