Water lock-offs haunt Sherlock Crescent

Published:Tuesday | February 20, 2018 | 12:00 AM


I listened keenly to Mark Barnett, president of the National Water Commission (NWC), speaking on TVJ's 'Smile Jamaica' on Monday morning (February 19, 2018), speaking about the importance of conserving water and that all catchment facilities in Kingston and St Andrew are in good standing at this time.

My question is, if all water-catchment areas are adequately full, why is Sherlock Crescent in Duhaney Park having water lock-offs every day?

Sunday to Sunday, even on Christmas Day and all other holidays, there is a water lock-off. The water supply is turned off in the mornings and returns late at night. All of this has been going on for months now, with no explanation from the NWC. We are suffering and no one cares.

Letters have even been sent to the president's attention, but there has been no response.

We would like to conserve water, too, Mr Barnett, but we have none in our pipes to catch.
