WASA releases water schedule as Desalcott shuts down today

In a bid to mitigate the effects of the week-long shutdown of the Point Lisas Desalcott Plant, which begins today, the Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) has released a water schedule for the near 40 areas in Central and South Trinidad which will be affected.

The schedule, which can be found on WASA’s social media pages and website, will see areas receiving water on specific days and specific times such as 9 am to 3 pm or 11 pm to 5 am to name a few.

Desalcott announced last week that the seven-day shutdown was necessary to facilitate upgrades to the plant and the necessary maintenance works.

Desalcott provides some 40 million gallons of water daily to WASA, which is used to supply water to industrial consumers on the Point Lisas Industrial Estate, as well as domestic consumers in the South.

In addition to its water schedule, persons can contact WASA for water by calling the hotline on 800-4426, or via WhatsApp on 709-7793, as well as on its social media platforms.

Water trucking capacity is expected to be increased and special arrangements to supply essential services such as health institutions, homes for the aged, government and special needs organisations will be prioritised.

For more information, customers can contact WASA’s customer call centre at 800-4420/26.
