Parts of South East Trinidad experiencing a disruption in their pipe borne water supply today, could expect to have supplies regularised by Wednesday, this week.

According to an advisory from the Water and Sewerage Authority, there has been a rupture on the 36-inch diameter Navet Trunk Pipeline, located in the forested cross-country area of Tabaquite, which connects to the Navet  Water  Treatment  Plant.
