A defective High-lift Pump at the Carlsen Field Water Treatment Plant is causing low water pressures or in some cases no water supply to customers in Central Trinidad.

According to the Water and Sewerage Authority (the Authority) emergency repairs are currently underway and is expected to be completed by 4:00 p.m. today.

Some of the affected areas include Carlsen Field Farm Proper, Thompson Road, Sou Sou Lands, Success Trace, Parts of Edinburgh Road, Upper and Lower Arena Road, La Quesa Road to Upper Siewdass Road Temple, Mission Road from Freeport Overpass along Mission Road up to Siewdass Road Junction and Christian Village (East of the Tunnel).

WASA says it may take up to 24 hours for the service to normalize to some affected areas following the completion of the repair work.
