WASA: Point Lisas Desalination Plant back up to 82 percent
The Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) is advising members of the public that the Point Lisas Desalination Plant is currently operating at around 82% capacity and is delivering approximately 33 million gallons daily to WASA as compared to the contracted flow of 40 million gallons daily.
WASA said this is the latest update from the Desalination Company of Trinidad and Tobago (Desalcott), owner and operator of the Point Lisas Desalination Plant.
According to a release from the Authority, it said this is in keeping with their projected ramping up of production as they continue to address operational issues which arose at the facility.
The statement noted that the increased delivery from Desalcott has had a positive impact on the Authority’s overall water distribution to affected areas in parts of Central and South West Trinidad.
However, WASA will continue to maintain the mitigating measures that have been in place since the problem first arose including re-distributing water supplies from the Caroni and Navet Water Treatment Plants in order to supplement the flows from the Desalination Plant.
Customers are reminded that temporary water supply schedules to affected areas can be accessed via the Authority’s website: www.wasa.gov.tt or Facebook page: WASA Trinidad and Tobago.
For further information or assistance, customers are encouraged to contact WASA’s Customer Call Centre toll-free at 800-4420/4426.
A limited truck-borne water service will be available with priority given to special homes, healthcare and government institutions.
