The Water and Sewerage Authority (the Authority) wishes to remind customers in parts of Central and South Trinidad, of the upcoming planned shutdown of the Desalination Company of Trinidad and Tobago (Desalcott) owned and operated Point Lisas Desalination Plant, to facilitate maintenance works.
The shutdown, which is scheduled to take place from Monday 8 October to Thursday 11 October 2018 with a 36 hour period thereafter for full restoration of operations, will impact areas in Central and South Trinidad including (among others):
Caroni, Cunupia, Caparo Valley, Chaguanas, Carapichaima, Couva, Point Lisas, Claxton Bay, Marabella, Gasparillo, Cocoyea, San Fernando, La Romaine, Palmiste, Phillipine, South Oropouche, Rousillac, Aripero, La Brea, Avocat, Fyzabad, Siparia, Debe, Penal, Quarry, Palo Seco and Santa Flora.
In order to mitigate the effects of this supply shortfall on operations, the Authority will implement the following measures during the period of shutdown.

Customers are reminded 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 as well as 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
