Cutback in production at Pt. Lisas desalination plant
The Water and Sewerage Authority advises customers in parts of Central and South West Trinidad of a cutback in production at the Point Lisas Desalination Plant, from Tuesday 5 December to Wednesday 13 December, 2017. This has become necessary due to operational problems at the plant.
The Desalination Company of Trinidad and Tobago – DESALCOTT owned and operated plant, normally supplies WASA with 40 million gallons of water per day (mgd). However this will be reduced to 32 mgd throughout the period of the cutback.
Areas affected include:
Customers are asked to manage their water use efficiently, as it may take 12 to 24 hours for the supply to normalize to some affected areas, after the Plant returns to full operation.
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 will be available with priority given to special homes, health care and educational institutions.
The Authority apologizes for the inconvenience caused as a result of this situation.
