Desalination plant maintenance may affect around 75% of the country

Is it just me or does anyone else believe that we should probably have a backup system for catastrophic events. I heard on the news that the shutdown of the desalination plant for 9 days to do maintenance on it - in Trinidad would affect nearly 75% of the country... I think we really need to have another plant on backup or another system to shed the load. Water is one of the most important ingredients to sustain life and I don't think the country is serious enough about the problems that might be faced during a catastrophic event. Worse of all, I just have a feeling that there's going to be water woes during the 9 day shutdown. Tank systems generally only supply water for about 3-4 days so my logic is telling me that there's going to be some issues here.
