Improvement & maintenance works to disrupt water supply



National Water Commission | 2013-01-25 00:00:00

The National Water Commission wishes to advise customers in sections of St. Thomas who are served by the White Horses Water Supply System that the disruption they are currently experiencing in their service is due to power supply related works being carried out at the facility.

Areas impacted by this interruption in service include: Crighton Hall, Botany Bay, White Horses and Pamphret.  The company is reporting that every effort is being made to restore water supply to these areas within the shortest possible time.

In the meantime, the Long Lane pumps on the Constant Spring system will be shut down on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 between the hours of 8:00am and 5:00pm to facilitate works under the Jamaica Water Supply Project (JWSIP). These works will result in service interruption to customers in Orange Grove and Long Lane Road.  Customers in these areas are therefore encouraged to store water during the period of disruption.

Meanwhile, customers in sections of Clarendon who are served by the Chatteau Deepwell will experience an extended disruption in their water supply for the period Tuesday, January 29, 2013 through to Monday, February 4, 2013.  This is due to urgent and extensive works that will be carried out on the Deepwell.

Areas that will be affected include: Sevens Estate Ltd, Sevens Road, Sevens Plantation, Effortville, Oliver Gardens, Warsop Farm, Zion Avenue, Leon Avenue, Donald Avenue, Atkinson Drive, Alexander Avenue, Mt. Clair, Bryants Crescent, Stewart Avenue, Sewell Crescent, Windsor Avenue, Fosmore Drive and May Pen Town.

The Commission is assuring customers who are served by the Chatteau Well that trucked water will be provided throughout the period of disruption and that every effort will be made to restore normal piped water supply before or within the specified time.

The National Water Commission apologizes for any inconvenience caused.
