Month-long water disruption coming for some Clarendon communities

Sections of Clarendon are to experience month-long disruptions in their water supply as the National Water Commission (NWC) undertakes extensive rehabilitation to the Chatteau Well.

The utility company says the well is to be taken out of operations for a period of 35 days beginning on Monday, August 24.

It says the well was recently assessed and found to be under-performing and in need of repair and rehabilitation.

The NWC says the works will result in disruptions to regular water supply to the communities of Sevens Heights, Oliver Gardens, Bryan’s Pen, Effortville, Sevens Road and all roads leading off.

As a result, customers normally served by the well will receive regulated water supply between 7 a.m and 7 p.m.

The NWC says water will be trucked to communities during the hours regulated service.
