WASA: Pt Lisas desalination plant back up and running

Customers in parts of South Trinidad can rest assured that their water supply will soon be back to normal after the Point Lisas Desalination Plant completed maintenance works over the weekend.

In a statement issued Monday, the Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) said scheduled works which were carried out from October 30-November 5 have been completed.

WASA said the plant, which is owned by The Desalination Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (Desalcott), returned to full operation at 3.00 pm on Sunday. It is expected that pipe borne water supply schedules will be normalised within 36 hours.

Desalcott has advised WASA however that a further planned shutdown will be required due to additional maintenance works needed to be performed on the Desalination Plant.

WASA said it will communicate with customers regarding the proposed date and mitigation measures to be undertaken, as the time for these planned works approaches.

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

WASA thanks customers for their patience and understanding during the recent disruption in service caused by the maintenance at the Desalination Plant.
