Residents of Penal/Debe area and environs, have been without a supply of water for over a week. I have been informed that the Desalcott owned and operated Point Lisas Desalination Plant is presently shutdown in parts of Central and South Trinidad. Some of the affected residents are located at Union Hall, Retrench, Golconda, Diamond and other areas. Even though operations would have been restarted in parts of Central and South, these affected households have been subjected to extreme inconvenience and health hazards resulting from the failure of the WASA to provide a pipe borne supply of water at this Christmas period.
In the circumstances, I request that the WASA undertake all necessary action to have the Desalcott operations up and running to full production at the earliest possible opportunity to provide emergency relief to the affected residents.
