The lack of rainfall has affected the water supply in some plants of the Water and Sewage Authority.
In a release the Authority alerted the public that while some of its plants have been affected by the lack of rainfall, it has been able to maintain adequate supplies to most communities throughout Trinidad and Tobago with the implementation of its Dry Season Water Management Plan.
It stated that the lack of rainfall over the past three months has had a significant impact on water production at some localized sources that supply various communities.
In a statement issued on April 8, 2015, by the Director, Meteorological Services, it was revealed that the outlook for May 2015 was for below-normal rainfall. It disclosed that the Authority has been continually reviewing its Water Management Plan in light of the situation.
This includes adjustments to existing water schedules, as well as a ramped up water trucking service to supplement the shortfall in supply, particularly in areas where there are no alternative sources, according to WASA.
