WASA: Water shortages in St James, St Clair

Residents and businesses in St James and St Clair are advised of water shortages due to repairs being done by the Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA).

In a statement issued Wednesday, WASA said ongoing repairs are being done to a ruptured 21 inch transmission main, along Serpentine Road, St. Clair, Port of Spain, which has been unavoidably delayed.

The Authority assures customers that its crews are working assiduously to complete the repair works with completion schedules for 12 noon, today - Wednesday 28 March, 2018.

Areas that continue to be affected include:

•             St. James

•             Long Circular and environs

Customers are further advised that it may take between 4 to 8 hours for the supply to normalize to some affected areas after the supply is restored.

For further information or assistance, customers can contact WASA’s Customer Call Centre toll free at 800-4420/4426.

A limited truck-borne water supply is available upon request with particular focus on medical institutions, schools and homes for the aged.

The Authority apologises for the inconvenience and thanks customers for their patience and understanding.
