SEVERAL WASA PLANTS AFFECTED BY ADVERSE WEATHER OVERNIGHT

The Water and Sewerage Authority (the Authority) advises customers in various areas throughout Trinidad and Tobago, who may be experiencing a disruption in their pipe borne water supply that this is due to adverse weather overnight, which has resulted in fallen trees and power failures affecting operations at a number of its Water Treatment Plants (WTPs).

The facilities impacted at this time include:

North East:

  • North Oropouche WTP
  • Matura WTP
  • Cumuto WTP
  • Luengo & Naranjo WTP

  • Aripo WTP
  • Quare WTP

The Authority is liaising closely with the Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Commission (T&TEC) in relation to having the power supply restored to the affected facilities in the shortest possible time. Customers are advised to manage their water use efficiently, as it may take up to 24 hours for the service to normalize to some areas, in accordance with pipe borne water 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 apologizes for the inconvenience and thanks customers for their patience and understanding.
