Leaking pipeline to disrupt water supplies in Central and South on Wednesday


    Residents in parts of Central and South Trinidad will not have a proper water supply for one day this week due to a leaking pipeline in Couva.

    WASA says emergency repairs will be done on the 54 inch main at Phoenix Park Link Road, Brechin Castle, from 3am Wednesday to 5am Thursday.

    Areas affected include Caroni, Kelly Village, St. Helena, Frederick Settlement, La Paille Gardens, Cunupia, Chin Chin, Charlieville, Warrenville, Munroe Road, Mon Plasir, Felicity, Pierre Road, Perseverance, Chase Village, Cacandee, Endeavour, Lange Park, Edinburgh 500, Chaguanas, Orchard Gardens, Caroni Savannah Road, Montrose, Longdenville, Caparo, Carapichaima, Waterloo, Orange Field, Bank Village, Mc Bean, St Mary’s, Couva, Roystonia, Dow Village, California, Esperanza, Claxton Bay, Macaulay, Hermitage, Caratal and Springvale.

    In the interim, WASA will re-distribute supplies from two other Plants and increase water trucking with priority given to health institutions, homes for the aged and other special needs organizations.

    Persons are urged to conserve water as it may take about 24 to 48 hours for the service to return to normal when the line is fixed.
