WASA: Some areas without water, systems to normalise within 24hrs

The Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) is advising customers that the water supply has been restored to most affected communities in North Trinidad served by the Caroni Water Treatment Plant following completion of repairs to the ruptured 36-inch diameter transmission main along the Beetham Highway on Tuesday.

However, WASA says some areas will experience low pressures and in some cases, no water due to above normal demand.  

Normalization of system operation and pipe borne water supply will continue over the next 12-24 hours to communities at the extremities of the system including Cascade, St. Anns, Upper Belmont and Santa Cruz.

The Authority also advises that some customers may experience a discoloured water supply.

In such instances, the water should be allowed to flow until it clears.

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 continues to be available with priority given to special homes, healthcare and educational institutions.
