More than 80 percent are notorious water bill defaulters
WILLEMSTAD - The number of households in Curaçao which has been cut off from the water network for years is around 1400. Most of them are defaulters because they did not pay their utility bills.
In 2011, Aqualectra tried to receive payments through several arrangements but that has not led to a decrease of the defaulters. Over 80 percent of households have completed a payment of more than six months.
Now Parliament wants these people to be reconnected. These users can buy prepaid waiter through the Pagatinu system.
