National Water Commission | 2013-01-30 00:00:00

In follow-up to a previous advisory regarding service at the Guy’s Hill Treatment Plant in St. Catherine, the National Water Commission is reporting that the plant remains out of service due to mechanical problems.

The company is advising customers served by this facility that they will continue to experience the disruption in their water supply until Monday, February 4, 2013.  This prolonged disruption is based on the extensive repair works being undertaken at the plant.  Customers will therefore be supplied with trucked water for the duration of the disruption.

Areas affected by this disruption include: Race Course, Jeffry Town, Decoy, Ragsville, Moreland, Redwood, Middlesex, Guys Hill, Windsor Castle, Barnett, Benbow and Bonnett.

In the meantime, customers in sections of St. Andrew who are served by the Forrest Hills Deepwell are being advised that the low water pressure they are experiencing is a result of mechanical problems at the well site.  The company is assuring that every effort is being made to restore normal water pressure in the shortest possible time.  

Affected areas include:  Rock Pond, Red Hills, Brentwood, Leas Flat, Belvedere, Mosquito Vallery, Sterling Castle, Forest Hills, Perkins Boulevard, Meadowbrook Estate, Leas Flats, Sterling Castle Heights, East Kirkland Heights and Burnside Valley.

The National Water Commission apologizes for any inconvenience caused.
