Residents in parts of South West  Trinidad  served  by  the  Point  Fortin  Desalination  Plant  and  Granville  Water Treatment  Plant, who are currently experiencing an  interruption  in  their  pipe  borne  water  supply, can expect to see some relief after 4:00 pm, today.

The supply disruption would have commenced at about 7:00 this morning.

A statement from the Water and Sewerage Authority advises that it is necessary due to  planned works by the Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Commission  (T&TEC)  at  their  Point  Fortin  Sub-Station,  which  will  affect  the  power supply to both facilities.

Affected areas include: 

Point Fortin (high points), Techier, Vance River, Merrimac, Vessigny, TGU, La Brea (up to  the  Pitch  Lake),  Parrylands,  Cochrane,  Mahaica,  Lot  10,  Cochrane,  Clifton  Hill, Reservoir  Hill;  along  with  Granville,  Cedros,  Fullerton,  Bamboo,  Icacos  and  Environs, Pt. Coco, Columbus and Coromandel.

WASA customers are reminded that it may take up to 24 hours for the service to normalize to some  affected  areas, in  accordance  with  pipe  borne  water  supply  schedules, after restoration of power to the facilities.

For further information or assistance, customers are asked to contact WASA’s Customer Call Centre toll free at 800-4420 or 800-4426.
