Mosquito lava filled pond

Health Hazard Ignored

The property in question is situated at #1 Naparima Mayaro Road, Cocoyea Village, San Fernando. The fish pond at the front of the house was built by the present owner over 8 years ago, but there are no fishes and it has become a breeding ground for mosquitoes. The owner does not live at the above address and the previous renters have left due to the condition of the property.
I made reports to the relevent authority and the health inspectors that visited said that the pond needs to be drained and cemented, but up to this day nothing has been done. The owner also has on the eastern side of the property, fenced in PETROTRIN gas lines, which the company knows about because of the numerous times officials have come to enquire about the fence enclosing their gas lines. They ordered that the fence must come down, but again to this day it remains the same with no follow up from the company.
Only within the last 2 weeks they sent their landscaping contractor to cut the grass around their gas lines, but they could not cut the grass properly because the line is fenced in. This causes the grass to grow very high, contributing to the high level of mosquito infestation.
