The Desalination Company of Trinidad and Tobago (Desalcott) has advised the Water and Sewerage Authority of Trinidad and Tobago (the Authority) of a planned shutdown of its Desalination Plant at Point Lisas to facilitate maintenance works.

The Desalcott owned and operated desalination plant, provides 40 million gallons daily to WASA, which is used to supply the Point Lisas Industrial Estate, as well as augment the supply to areas in Central and South Trinidad.
The planned shutdown will take place from Tuesday 26th September to Tuesday 3rd October 2017 and will have a significant negative impact on WASA’s overall supply position in Trinidad.

In order to mitigate the effects of this supply shortfall on our operations, the Authority will implement the following:

Customers are advised to maintain/establish a system of storage over the period of the shutdown and to also manage their water use efficiently by reducing consumption. This can be done by eliminating wasteful practices; repairing leaks and overflowing water tanks at home and in business places.

Customers are further advised that the temporary supply schedules will be available on the Authority’s website:; Facebook page: WASA Trinidad & Tobago; and Twitter: @wasatnt. For further information, assistance or to request a truck borne delivery, customers can contact WASA’s Customer Call Centre toll free at 800-4420/26.
