Update from WASA on water supply to several parts of North Trinidad
The Water and Sewerage Authority (the Authority) advises customers in parts of North East Trinidad, who are experiencing a disruption in their pipe borne water supply that this is due to the continued impact of recent heavy rainfall on operations at some of its water treatment facilities. In particular, the Matura, Guanapo, Quare, Luengo & Naranjo and Acono Water Treatment Plants (WTPs) remain out of operation due to turbid river conditions and clogged intake screens.
Areas affected include: Toco, Salybia, Matura, Valencia, parts of Arima and Maracas – St. Joseph
The Authority expects that these remaining facilities will be returned to service over the next 24 hours, once river conditions normalize at the various locations.
In a related matter, the Authority advises customers scheduled to receive a supply from the North Oropouche WTP today – Thursday 2nd August, 2018 that their service was also disrupted due to the impact of the heavy rainfall on operations at the plant.
The affected areas include: Malabar, La Horquetta, O’Meara Road, Carapo, Tumpuna Road, Brazil
Customers are reminded to manage their water use efficiently, as it may take up to 24 hours for the scheduled pipe borne water supply to normalize to some affected areas.
