WASA: Heavy rainfall affects supply in North Trinidad

The Water and Sewerage Authority advises customers that heavy rainfall over the past 24 hours has impacted operations at some of its water treatment facilities.  
Several of the Water Treatment Plants throughout North Trinidad were shut down due to various issues including turbid river conditions, clogged intake screens and power failures.
The Water Treatment Plants affected are: 
-Tompire
-Sans Soucci
-Matura
-Aripo
-Quare
-Guanapo
-Caura
-Luengo & Naranjo and
-Acono.

Areas affected by the shutdown include:
-Toco
-Salybia
-Valencia
-Arima
-El Dorado
-Tacarigua
-Maracas - St. Joseph.

WASA says service will resume when conditions normalise. The Authority advises customers to use their water wisely as it may take up to 24 hours for a normal supply of pipe borne water to return. 
WASA says there is also a disruption of water supply in the Fyzabad area as the plant is currently down. 
According to WASA repair work is underway and the problem should be fixed by later today.
