CAWASA didn’t invite Guyana’s water operators to be signatories to the affiliation
The aim of this letter is to appropriate the inaccurate statements made within the article revealed within the Guyana Instances on Thursday September 27, 2012. On Wednesday September 26, 2012, EMPRETEC, in collaboration with CAWASA Inc made a presentation on Water and Wastewater Certification to representatives of corporations and organizations associated to water and wastewater who’ve been invited to attend. The presentation happened within the Campbell Corridor of the Georgetown Membership. Guyana Instances, amongst different media homes, was invited to cowl this occasion.
The aim of the presentation was to introduce attendees to the operator certification program administered by CAWASA, along with the United States-based Affiliation of Boards of Certification (ABC), and generate curiosity in collaborating.
As a part of the three-day assembly, EMPRETEC organized a gathering between the heads of CAWASA and the administration of Guyana Water Inc (GWI) for the same presentation on Thursday, September 27, 2012.
CAWASA want to level out that at no time have we invited the water and wastewater operators of Guyana to be signatories of the affiliation. CAWASA is a utility-based group and doesn’t help particular person membership.
Second, the article incorrectly acknowledged that GWI had not “joined the initiative”. This assertion is inaccurate as a result of CAWASA officers didn’t meet with GWI management on Wednesday and due to this fact weren’t required to join this system on the time. In truth, the beforehand scheduled assembly with GWI officers held on the twenty seventh generated very cordial discussions and substantial curiosity in this system. Third, CAWASA is selling this system within the area to utilities and water-related corporations and has chosen to work by way of an impartial group. In Trinidad this strategy has confirmed to be very profitable and the identical strategy is being tried in Guyana utilizing EMPRETEC. This was a strategic resolution and is on no account related to what’s described by the Guyana Instances as “the same perspective described …”. by any public service in Trinidad or Guyana.
The article is disappointing in content material and on no account displays CAWASA’s intention and evaluation of GWI’s place on the certification program. CAWASA would due to this fact like to specific its honest apologies to the Board of Administrators and administration of GWI for any embarrassment the article could have brought about.
