The National Water Commission (NWC) is reporting that 1,143 illegal supplies were disconnected and 24 persons prosecuted for trespassing on its systems in August alone.
It says during that month operations were carried out in the parishes of St Catherine, Kingston and St Andrew, St James, Westmoreland and Hanover.
The NWC also says 48 civil cases were also initiated in August to recover outstanding amounts.
The actions are part of a drive by the NWC to tackle delinquency and theft.
The company says the ongoing island wide operations since January have resulted in the disconnection of 9,434 illegal connections, prosecution of 286 persons and the issuing of 403 summonses.
The NWC’s Revenue Recovery Department says it will continue to aggressively treat with the problem of delinquency and theft as a matter of paramount importance as the company moves to maintain a level of operational efficiency.
It says delinquency and theft contribute significantly to the financial losses that the Commission faces each year.
