SUPPLY ISSUES

TO CUSTOMERS SERVED BY THE LAS LOMAS WATER TREATMENT PLANT

Within recent times there has been a reduction in output from the Las Lomas Water Treatment Plant, therefore, the Water and Sewerage Authority (the Authority) commenced rehabilitation works at Las Lomas Well No.7 on Tuesday November 30th 2021 as part of its efforts to improve production at the Well. However, these works resulted in reduction in the overall production from the facility.

In order to mitigate supply issues to customers at the extremities of the system who may be affected as a result of these rehabilitation works, supplies from the Caroni Water Treatment were introduced to supplement the supply shortfall. However, the supply from the Caroni system was affected due to reduced production from the Pt. Lisas Desalination Plant which occurred between Wednesday 8th December 2021 and Tuesday 14th December 2021.

It should be noted that improvement works at Las Lomas Well No.7 will result in an improvement in the supply from the Plant which is scheduled to be completed on or before Wednesday 22nd December 2021.

During and prior to this period, the Authority has maintained constant communication with the Local Government representative for the affected area.

The Authority apologises for any inconvenience and assures customers that the measures being implemented will correct any supply issues to customers served by this facility.
