Customers in parts of Penal can expect a resumption of their normal water supply within the next 48 hours.
According to a statement from the Water and Sewerage Authority (the Authority), the shortage was due to missed schedules caused by the recent shutdown at the Point Lisas Desalination Plant, for planned maintenance work.
The affected areas, which are at the extremities of the water distribution system, are expected to receive a supply over the next 48 hours as follows:
Friday 26 to Saturday 27 January

Customers are further advised that the normal water supply schedule to their respective areas is expected to normalize in the coming week.
