Vientiane Water Utility Issues Public Announcement
Nov 30 – In response to shortfalls in revenue, the Vientiane State Water Supply Enterprise’s (VSWSE) issued an announcement to the general public, urging non paying customers to settle their water bills and mandatory water pipe checks.
The announcement, signed by Director-General Khampheuy Vongsakhamphuy, stated that the utility company would cut off water supply to those entities that have not paid their water bills in over two months.
The announcement also encouraged water users to cooperate with VSWSE employees who have been sent to perform routine water pipe inspections to ensure there are no leaks and no illegal water usages (bypassing official water meters).
Should anyone have concerns about the announcement, please call the VSWSE hotline at 1169.
