The Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) announced in a release on Monday that the Navet Water Treatment Plant had to be shut down so the distribution system could be flushed. Work is expected to be completed by 4 pm on Monday.

People will experience low water pressure or no water at all because of a “power trip which resulted in low clearwell levels at the facility.”

WASA advised the public to let dicoloured water run until it is clear because of the flushing. It apologised for any inconvenience caused and thanked customers for their patience and understanding.
