Three communities in Clarendon have been prioritised to receive potable water within the next 18 months, under a project expected to cost the Government close to $600 million.
This was disclosed by Minister of State in the Ministry of Water Ian Hayles, who toured several communities this week.
The communities which are to benefit from the programme are Rhymesbury, Kemps Hill, and Vernamfield.
Hayles told the Jamaica Information Service that close to 22,000 residents in South West Clarendon currently have difficulties with their potable water system.
He said the focus on the three communities is part of a greater campaign where some $8.1 billion will be spent to provide potable water for Jamaicans.
According to the Minister, several strategies are being undertaken by the Ministry to deal with the lack of potable water in some communities across the island.
