Customers are further advised that it may take up to 24 hours for the supply to normalize to some affected areas, after the Plant returns to full operation.

For further information or assistance, customers are encouraged to contact WASA’s Customer Call Centre toll free at 800-4420/4426. A limited truck-borne water service will be available with priority given to special homes, health care and government institutions.

The Authority apologizes for the inconvenience caused as a result of this situation at the Point Fortin Desalination Plant.
