Heavy rains affect operations at Water Treatment Plants


    Once again, heavy rainfall has disrupted operations at several water treatment plants in North Trinidad.

    WASA says due to turbid river conditions and clogged intakes, the following facilities have been impacted: Tompire, Aripo, Guanapo, Quare, Caura, Luengo & Naranjo and Acono.

    Areas affected as a result include: Toco, Valencia, parts of Arima, El Dorado, parts of Tacarigua and Maracas, St. Joseph.

    WASA says the affected facilities will return to service when conditions normalize at the various locations.

    In the meantime, it says customers should manage their water use efficiently, as it may take up to 24 hours thereafter for the restoration of their scheduled pipe borne supply.

    It also assures that the water currently being supplied complies with the Guidelines for Drinking Water Quality of the World Health Organisation.
