National Water Commission | 2013-02-04 00:00:00

The National Water Commission wishes to advise that the King Weston water supply system in St. Andrew is currently out of operation due to mechanical problems which are affecting service to the following areas:

Sections of Bucky Plain, Belmont, Grant Hill, Florence Hill, Lawrence Tavern, Mount Ogle, Matthew Road, Toms River, Cokely and Johnny Ridge.

The Commission is reporting that trucked water will be provided to these areas until normal water supply is restored.

In the meantime customers served by the Hope Bay Treatment Plant in Portland are being advised that the disruption they are currently experiencing in their water supply is a result of a broken 10-inch pipeline on the distribution network.

The affected areas include:  Hope Bay, St. Margaret’s Bay, Little, Spring Garden, Hermitage, Union, Union Hill, Hopefield, Canewood Road, Cooling Spring and Wydah.  Customers in these communities are being assured that every effort is being made to restore water supply tomorrow following completion of the repairs.

The National Water Commission regrets any inconvenience caused by these disruptions.
