The Water and Sewerage Company Incorporated (WASCO) wishes to inform the General Public of its deep regret and sadness with respect to a fatal incident that occurred at the Sir John Compton Dam (JCD) on the afternoon of Friday, August 16th 2019.

 A UK National Mr Martin Ellis and his three young sons were unfortunately able to access a restricted area of the Dam without first obtaining permission from the authorities to enter the compound.

 Access to that hilltop area is blocked with a secured metal chain across the roadway. Mr Ellis reportedly collapsed in this restricted area of the Dam.
