SERVICE DISRUPTION

NORTH OROPOUCHE PLANT TO SHUTDOWN FOR REPAIRS TO LEAK ON 42” TRANSMISSION PIPELINE

The Water and Sewerage Authority (the Authority) advises customers served by the Caroni Water Treatment Plant, who are presently experiencing low pressures or no water supply that, this is due to flooded river conditions and clogged band screens and trash racks at the raw water intake of the facility. This situation has resulted in reduced production at the Plant, from the normal 75 million gallons per day (mgd) to 60 mgd.

The Authority is currently carrying out emergency works to clean the screens and trash racks at the raw water intake, which is expected to be completed by 4:00 p.m. today – Monday 5th September, 2022.
