SERVICE DISRUPTION

SUPPLY DISRUPTION TO CUSTOMERS SERVED BY THE TOMPIRE WATER TREATMENT PLANT

The Water and Sewerage Authority, (the Authority), advises that customers served by the Tompire Water Treatment Plant, who are currently experiencing a disruption in their water supply, that this is due to prolonged turbid river conditions. High turbidity levels have resulted in clogged screens which have rendered the Treatment Plant inoperable.

The Authority is aware of the hardship caused by this disruption and is currently activating a contingency plan to provide a supply in the shortest possible time. This effort will be coordinated with the Local Government Councillor and the Authority’s Operations and Customer Response Teams, to ensure that all critical needs are met.

Whilst persistent rainfall activity will impede efforts to return the facility to service, the Authority remains committed to providing both short- and long-term solutions to supply challenges faced by affected communities along North East Trinidad.

The Authority thanks customers for their continued patience and understanding.
