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:
Caroni 
St. Helena
Charlieville 
Chaguanas
Cunupia 
Carapichaima
Claxton Bay 
Marabella
Gasparillo 
Vistabella
Gulf View 
Union Hall
La Romaine
Palmiste
Phillipine 
Rambert Village
Woodland 
Fyzabad
San Francique
Cocoyea

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.
