The Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) has released a water schedule for close to 40 areas in Central and South Trinidad which will be affected when the Point Lisas Desalcott Plant shuts down from Monday.

Last week at a news conference WASA and Desalcott officials said the seven-day shutdown was necessary to facilitate upgrades to the plant and the necessary maintenance works.

The scheduled, 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 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.

WASA conducted maintenance at its Caroni plant the week before, to ensure supplies are not disrupted while maintenance was being undertaken at Desalcott.

The authority said 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.
