Matura still without water after heavy rainfall

While the majority of water treatment plants have been restarted after being affected by heavy rainfall experienced over the past two days, residents of Matura remain without a pipe-borne water supply.

The Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) has advised that all affected facilities have been returned to service, barring the Matura Water Treatment Plant, which is still affected by turbid river conditions. 

WASA says it is monitoring river conditions at this facility and expects to restart the plant in the coming hours, as conditions normalise.

The Authority also reminded customers to manage their water use efficiently, as it may take up to 24 hours for the scheduled pipe borne water supply to normalise to some affected areas.

For further information or assistance, customers are asked to contact WASA’s Customer Call Centre toll free at 800-4420/26.
