NWC system problems leave large sections of Clarendon without water

The National Water Commission (NWC) has advised customers in some sections of Clarendon that are served by the Low Ground and the Bucknor Re-lift plants, that the disruption that are currently being experienced is as a result of electro-mechanical problems affecting operation at the facilities.

The NWC has indicated that following the completion of an assessment, an update will be provided regarding the resumption of operations at the stations.

The affected areas are:

Hall, Ennis, Suttons, Teak Pen, Turners, Four Paths Post Road, Chapelton, New Longsville, New Roads, Sangster’s Heights, New Danks, Shingle Hut, Mount Providence, Sine, Married Lane, Alexandria and Bucknor and Bushy Park

Also in Clarendon, the commission is reporting that the Kellits Treatment Plant is out of service, due to Jamaica Public Service power supply problems, while operation at the Rock River Treatment Plant has been suspended to facilitate pipe repairs on the network.

The areas impacted are:

Kellits, Crofts Hill, Good Hope, Tait, Pedro, Rhoden Hall, Guava Ground, Hickery, Comsie, Jericho, Rock River, Tanarky, Gordon Wood and Tom Peter

The NWC said it will restore the water supplies as soon as normality returns to the facilities.
