Various parts of northeastern Trinidad will experience water disruption after 12 hours of consistent heavy rain.

In a release, the Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) said the operations at seven water treatment plants would be affected because of turbid river conditions and clogged intakes.

The affected plants are Tompire, Matura, Aripo, Guanapo, Caura, Luengo and Naranjo, and Acono.

Areas affected include: Toco, Matura, Valencia, parts of Arima, El Dorado, parts of Tacarigua and Maracas, St Joseph.

WASAsaid these facilities are expected to return to service when conditions return to normal at the plants.
