WASA publishes water schedules as Desalcott shuts down from Monday
The Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) has published temporary water schedules for the period September 30 to October 16, as a result of the planned shutdown of the Descalott Company of Trinidad and Tobago (Desalcott).
According to WASA, the planned shutdown will mostly impact the pipe borne water supply to areas in Central and South Trinidad.
Descalott provides 40 million gallons of water daily to WASA, which is used to supply the Point Lisas Industrial Estate, as well as augment the supply to areas in Central and South Trinidad.
In order to mitigate the effects of this supply shortfall on operations, the authority will implement a number of measures during the period including increased productions and re-distribution of supply from the Caroni and Navet Treatment Plants, implementation of temporary supply schedules and increased trucking capacity.
Some of the affected areas will include: Caroni, St Helena, Charlieville, Chaguanas, Cunupia, Caripichaima, Couva, Claxton Bay, Marabella, Gasparillo, San Fernando, Cocoyea, Union Hall, La Romaine, Woodland, Palmiste, Phillipine, Rambert Village, South Oropouche, Fyzabad, Avocat, Siparia, Penal, San Francique, Rousillac, Aripero and La Brea.
