WASA has officially charged two farmers who were reportedly siphoning water in Aranguez for their gardens.
The farmers were served with summonses to appear in court later this month while they were meeting with Agriculture Minister Clarence Rambharat on Tuesday evening.
On Saturday, security officers employed with WASA confiscated the pumps of two farmers in the Aranguez district.
The farmers had threatened legal action against the move and demanded the return of their equipment.
WASA has imposed restrictions on the use of water hoses, sprinklers and imposed a scheduled supply of water to residents as it claims its reservoirs were being depleted by the harsh dry season.
The farmers are expected to appear before the Port-of-Spain Third Magistrates' Court on May 22.
