Shutdown of the Point Lisas Desalination Plant – Trinidad – Point Lisas

Citizens are advised that water schedules throughout Trinidad may be affected by the planned shutdown of the Point Lisas Desalination Plant from Monday October 30 to Sunday November 5, 2017. In a release, the Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) said it was advised by the Desalination Company of Trinidad and Tobago (Desalcott) of the rescheduled planned shutdown of its Desalination Plant at Point Lisas to facilitate maintenance works. The planned shutdown will now take place from Monday 30th October to Sunday 5th November 2017 and will have a significant impact on WASA’s overall supply position in Trinidad. The Desalcott owned and operated desalination plant, provides 40 million gallons daily to WASA, which is used to supply the Point Lisas Industrial Estate, as well as augment the supply to areas in Central and South Trinidad. In order to mitigate the effects of this supply shortfall on our operations, the Authority will implement the following on the shutdown dates:

– re-distribution of supply from the Caroni and Navet Water Treatment Plants;

– implementation of temporary supply schedules;

– ensure capacity storage at critical service reservoirs;

– increase water trucking capacity;

– special emphasis and arrangements to supply schools, health institutions, homes for aged and other special needs organisations;

– accelerate response to leak repair.

Customers are advised to maintain/establish a system of storage, over the period of the shutdown, and to also manage their water use efficiently by reducing consumption. This can be done by eliminating wasteful practices; repairing leaks and overflowing water tanks at home and in business places. Customers are further advised that the temporary supply schedules will be published in the press, as well as available on the Authority’s website: www.wasa.gov.tt; Facebook page: WASA Trinidad & Tobago; and Twitter: @wasatnt. For further information, assistance or to request a truck borne delivery, customers can contact WASA’s Customer Call Centre toll free at 800-4420/26.
