In a statement issued on Monday morning, the authority said ongoing emergency repair works are expected to be completed by 6:00 am on Tuesday.

Affected areas include:

Piarco Airport, Port of Spain, St. James

Morvant, Laventille, Beetham Gardens 

Gonzales, Belmont, Cascade

St. Augustine, Curepe, Champ Fleurs

Mt Dor, Petit Bourg, Valsayn South

Customers are further advised that upon completion of repairs, it may take up to 36 hours for the scheduled pipe-borne service to be normalised to some areas.

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

A limited truck-borne water service will be available with priority given to special homes, healthcare and educational institutions.
