Mechanical problems affecting one of the highlift pumps at the Valsayn Highlift Station are responsible for the water service interruption currently being experienced in parts of north Trinidad.

WASA assures customers that a limited truck-borne water service will be available upon request.

The Authority notes that affected areas include areas North of the Eastern Main Road from St. Joseph to Tunapuna, inclusive of Curepe and St. Augustine.
