WASA adjusts supply schedules to Central, South as water woes continue

As reservoir levels continue to be impacted by reduced rainfall levels, the Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) has advised that water supply schedules in Central and South Trinidad have been adjusted.

WASA said the adjustments became necessary as continued reduced water availability remains a challenge. 

The revised schedules were posted to the Authority’s website, Facebook and Twitter pages last Thursday.

WASA noted that it has enacted measures outlined in its 2019 Water Supply Management Plan, which stresses a three-tier approach involving supply management, unaccounted for water (leaks and illegal connections), and demand management, especially given that 60 percent of daily water production is derived from surface water sources.

The Authority assured that equitable distribution of available water resources is at the core of its Plan, to ensure the sustainability of supplies. 

WASA reminded citizens that water use restrictions imposed on January 28 remain in effect, and encouraged customers to conserve available water supplies and comply with the water use restrictions.
