From November 8th to 13th, the Point Lisas Desalination Plant will be shutdown to facilitate maintenance works.
In a media release Friday, the Water and Sewage Authority said it will mostly impact the pipe borne water supply to areas in Central and South Trinidad.
The Plant which is owned and operated by the Desalination Company of Trinidad and Tobago provides forty million gallons daily to WASA, which is used to supply the Point Lisas Industrial Estate, as well as augment the supply to areas in Central and South Trinidad.
In order to mitigate the effects of this supply shortfall on operations, the Authority will implement measures during the period of shutdown:
Increased production and re-distribution of supply from the Caroni and Navet Water Treatment Plants, implementation of temporary supply schedules, ensure capacity storage at critical service reservoirs, increased water trucking capacity and special emphasis and arrangements to supply schools, health institutions, homes for aged and other special needs organisations.
