The Water and Sewerage Authority has stated that in spite of recent periods of heavy rainfall, the water supply schedules implemented during the Dry Season and maintained through the Dry Spell at the beginning of the Rainy Season, remain in effect.
Though recent rainfall events have had a positive impact on their reservoir levels to the point where all four – Arena, Navet, Hollis and Hillsborough, are now beyond the respective long-term averages, the Authority is continuing to closely monitor these levels in relation to the country’s overall water supply situation.
The Authority has also assured that it has engaged in prudent management of their water resources, in order to ensure that all major reservoirs are at capacity by the end of the year, in preparation for the 2015 Dry Season.
WASA has acknowledged that some customers may have experienced an increased water supply recently.
It explained that this was due to improvements in the overall production capability at several of its surface water treatment plants that benefitted from greater rainfall levels lately.
Customers served by the Hollis Reservoir in particular are however advised that the reduced schedules implemented during the Dry Season remain unchanged due to the slow recovery rate of that system.
The areas served by the Hollis system include: Town of Arima, Malabar Phase 2, Parts of O’Meara Road, Samaroo Village, Arima Old Road and environs, Lynton Gardens, Clever Road and environs, D’abadie
La Resource North & South , Lillian Heights and Bregon Park, Arouca and the Eastern Main Road from Arima to Arouca.
