The Ministry of Works and Transport is seeking to secure the safety of all citizens by ensuring that developers adhere to the prescribed drainage requirements. Unplanned developments and poor drainage systems lead to devastating floods.
It is a breach of the law and an offence to carry out development in Trinidad and Tobago without obtaining the necessary drainage approvals from the Ministry of Works and Transport and other relevant agencies.
Here are the Guidelines to obtain Drainage Design Approvals
Persons who wish to obtain drainage design approvals must contact the Drainage Division of the Ministry of Works and Transport.
All enquiries, complaints, compliments and suggestions relating to services of the Drainage Division can also be addressed to:
