Service Interruption to
parts of North West Trinidad

The Water and Sewerage Authority (the Authority) wishes to further advise customers in parts of North West Trinidad served by the Valsayn A Booster Station, who are experiencing a disruption in their pipe borne water supply that the inclement weather over the past 12 hours has caused a further delay in the completion of repairs to the leaking 30 inch diameter transmission main, along the Eastern Main Road, St. Joseph, in the vicinity of Hutton Road.

Critical pipeline welding work, which could not be carried out during rainfall, must first be completed in order to progress the repair works. In view of this situation, the estimated completion time has been extended to 4:00 a.m. on Thursday 12th December, 2019.

In light of this, an extended but still limited water trucking service is in place to service customers impacted by the ongoing repair works, with priority being given to medical institutions, schools and homes for the aged. Customers are also reminded that it may take up to 24 hours for the scheduled pipe borne water service to normalize to some areas following the completion of repair works.

For further information or assistance customers are asked to contact WASA’s Customer Call Centre toll free at 800-4420/4426.

The Authority apologizes for the inconvenience and thanks customers for their patience and understanding.
