WASA: Problems at Pt Lisas Desalination Plant still ongoing


    Desalcott is still attempting to address ongoing problems at the Point Lisas Desalination Plant.

    There was an initial disruption of the plant on Monday December 3rd, with a partial operation being achieved the following day.

    WASA says due to this, it has had to re-distribute supplies from its Caroni and Navet Water Treatment Plant, and as a result customers in Central and South Trinidad may be without their normal pipe borne water supply.

    103FM News also understands that residents at Kumar Village in Williamsville are still without a water supply since December 1st.

    The Authority says current production at the plant is 25 million gallons daily as compared to a capacity of 40 with Desalcott indicating that ramping up of production has been delayed.

    WASA is advising customers in the affected areas to manage their water use efficiently as Desalcott continues its efforts to address the problem.

    It adds that a limited truck-borne water service will be available with priority given to special homes, health care and government institutions.
