Eslyn Romascindo-Hussain, Mayor of Mahdia

Residents of Mahdia, Region Eight are facing several challenges relating to garbage collection and disposal, water service and the supply of electricity.

The Potaro-Siparuni community was declared a town on October 25th, 2018.

Several residents spoke to this newspaper on the condition of anonymity. They told Stabroek News that for over a month no water was coming through their taps. Mahdia is supplied with water from Salbora, a natural reservoir located in the Ebini Hills on the southeastern periphery of the town. One resident informed Stabroek News that the Guyana Water Inc [GWI] was apprised of the situation in Mahdia, and following technical works undertaken at Salbora water distribution was recently restored. Prior to the works, a GWI tanker was distributing water to households to alleviate the hardships being encountered. A few individuals grabbed the opportunity to access water from Salbora and resold it to other residents.
