Parts of South-West Trinidad will be without a pipe-borne water supply tomorrow, Wednesday June 16th, between the hours of 8:00 am and midnight, according to an advisory issued by the Water and Sewerage Authority.

However, the water authority assures customers that a limited truck-borne water service will be available upon request.

WASA explains the water supply disruption is necessary in order to facilitate emergency repairs to a leak on the 36-inch transmission pipeline in the vicinity of the diversion associated with South Oropouche Interchange, being done as part of the Solomon Hochoy Highway Expansion Project.

Areas affected include:

●   Otaheite

●   Dow Village

●   Mon Desir

●   Rousillac

●   Aripero

●   Chinese Village

●   Sobo

Customers are advised that it may take up to 24 hours for the scheduled pipe borne water supply to normalize to some affected areas following the completion of these repair works.

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