Repairs to desal plant to end on Monday night


    Repairs to the Pt. Lisas Desalination Plant are scheduled to end at midnight on Monday, which will end a cutback in water production that began over the weekend.

    These emergency works is causing many areas in Central and South Trinidad to receive low water pressures or no water supplies at all.

    The plant was shut down for seven hours on Saturday, and was subsequently restarted, producing 29 million out of the usual 40 million gallons per day.

    Areas affected ranges from St. Helena, Caroni, Charlieville, Chaguanas, Carapichaima, Claxton Bay, Marabella, Gasparillo, down to Woodland, Fyzabad, San Francique, Debe, Rousillac, and Siparia, among others.
