WASA announces water disruption in south Trinidad

The Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) advises customers in parts of south Trinidad, served by the Navet Water Treatment Plant that they may experience a disruption in their normal pipe borne water supply, due to reduced production at the Plant as a result of mechanical problems.

Repair works currently underway are expected to be completed by Friday 13 July.

Areas to be affected by low pressures or no water at times include:

WASA will be redistributing water from the Caroni Water Treatment Plant and Point Lisas Desalination Plant in order to minimise the impact of this disruption to consumers in the affected areas.

A limited truck-borne water service will also be available with priority given to health care institutions and special homes.

Customers are further advised to manage their water use efficiently as it may take 12 to 24 hours for the supply to normalise to some affected areas after the Plant returns to full operation.

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