Residents evacuated following leak at WASA Paramin Plant

A chlorine leak at WASA's Paramin Base Station has forced the evacuation of some residents of Woodbine Gardens, Maraval.

WASA says the evacuation was precautionary and the authority explains that within minutes of receiving the call at seven o'clock this morning, it was able to contain the leak.

WASA's Communications Manager Daniel Plenty says residents have since been given the all clear to return to their homes.
