Water supply disruption to Central and South Trinidad
The Water and Sewerage Authority (the Authority) advises customers in parts of Central and South Trinidad served by the Caroni Water Treatment Plant that there will be an interruption in their water supply from 3:00 a.m. on Wednesday 8th August, to 5:00 a.m. on Thursday 9th August, 2018.
This disruption has become necessary to facilitate emergency repairs to a leak on the 54” diameter South Trunk Main at Phoenix Park Link Road, Brechin Castle, Couva.
Areas to be affected include:
Caroni, Kelly Village, St. Helena, Frederick Settlement, La Paille Gardens, Cunupia, Chin Chin, Charlieville, Warrenville, Munroe Road, Mon Plasir, Felicity, Pierre Road, Perseverance, Chase Village, Cacandee, Endeavour, Lange Park, Edinburgh 500, Chaguanas, Orchard Gardens, Caroni Savannah Road, Montrose, Longdenville, Caparo, Carapichaima, Waterloo, Orange Field, Bank Village, Mc Bean, St Mary's, Couva, Roystonia, Dow Village, California, Esperanza, Claxton Bay, Macaulay, Hermitage, Caratal and Springvale.
In order to mitigate the effects of this disruption, the Authority will implement the following measures:
- re-distribution of supply from the Navet Water Treatment Plant and Point Fortin Desal Plant;
- increase water trucking capacity;
- ensure capacity storage at critical service reservoirs;
- special emphasis and arrangements to supply health institutions, homes for aged and other special needs organisations.
Customers are advised to manage their water use efficiently, as it may take between 24 to 48 hours for the service to normalize to some areas, in accordance with established supply schedules. For further information or assistance, customers are asked to contact WASA’s Customer Call Centre toll free at 800-4420/26.
The Authority apologises for the inconvenience and thanks the public for their patience and understanding.
