Water restrictions for Spanish Town and its environs

The National Water Commission (NWC) has advised that it will be implementing water supply regulations to sections of Spanish Town in St Catherine.

The commission said the move had become necessary to alleviate the broad water disruptions being experienced by some customers due to the heavy rainfall conditions that have forced the shutdown of the Spanish Town Treatment Plant.

The areas to be affected and the times they will be served are as follows:-

DAYTIME: Between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

Spanish Town proper, Old Harbour Road, sections of Johnson Pen main road, Willowdene,

Sydenham Gardens, Horizon Park, Brunswick Avenue, Brunswick main road, El Prado Housing

Scheme, Cromarty Housing Scheme, Leiba Gardens, Hopedale, Featherbed Lane, White

Water Meadows, Hartlands, Hampton Green, Valdez Road, and all roads leading off.

NIGHTTIME: Between the hours of 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m.

Ebony Vale, Fairview, sections of Fairfield Road, sections of Johnson Pen, Frenchman

Heights, Royal Place, Golden Acres, Strathmore Gardens, Ardene Avenue, Fairfield Road, and

all roads leading off.

The regulations will remain in effect until the treatment plant has resumed normal operation.

The commission said during this period, some customers are still likely to experience reduced water pressure or some instances of outages.

The NWC said it will seek to provide relief trucking of water for the affected areas.
