Dry taps for some in Central on Wednesday

Repairs to a defective valve in Kelly Village will leave residents in parts of Central Trinidad without water for most of the day on Wednesday.

The Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) has advised that those served by the Caroni Water Treatment plant will experience an interruption in their pipe borne water supply on Wednesday, from 6 am to 6 pm.

WASA said the disruption was necessary to facilitate repairs to a defective valve off the Caroni South Trunk Transmission System, located along the Caroni South Bank Road, Kelly Village.

Areas to be affected include: Caroni, St. Helena, Felicity, Charlieville, Munroe Road, Warrenville, Longdenville, Caparo, Enterprise, Cunupia, Chaguanas, Endeavour, Carapichaima, Waterloo, Chase Village, Freeport, Gran Couva, Mayo, Couva, Dow Village, Basta Hall, Milton and California​.

WASA reminded residents that it may take up to 24 hours for the scheduled pipe borne water supply to normalise to some affected areas after repair works have been completed.

Motorists are also asked to proceed with caution around the jobsite.

Customers can contact WASA’s Customer Call Centre toll-free at 800-4420/4426 for further information or assistance.
