The Water and Sewerage Authority (the Authority) advises customers in parts of Central and South West Trinidad, who are presently experiencing low water pressures or in some cases no water that this is as a result of repair work being done at the Point Lisas Desalination Plant.

The Desalination Company of Trinidad and Tobago – DESALCOTT owned and operated facility, which normally supplies WASA with 40 million gallons of water per day (mgd), has indicated that while repairs are taking place production has been reduced to 25 mgd. These works are scheduled to be completed on, Friday 10th December 2021.

WASA will maintain communication with the company and provide further updates if the need arises.
