Some NWC customers in Trelawny, St Ann and St James to experience water disruptions

The National Water Commission (NWC) says that there is a 40 per cent decline in production operations at the Martha Brae Treatment Plant in Trelawny. 

NWC says this situation developed in the aftermath of heavy rainfall, which has resulted in the partial blockage of the intake at the facility.

As a result, customers in Trelawny, St Ann and St James who are served by this system, will experience either low water pressure or be without piped water.

The NWC says it apologises for any inconvenience the disruption may cause and that effort is being made to restore normalcy to the affected areas at the earliest possible time.

The areas affected include:

*** St Ann:

* Discovery Bay

* Bridgewater Heights

* Primrose Hill

* Lakeside Park

* Hopewell Park

* Old Polly

* Parry Town

*** Trelawny:

* Green Park

* Schawfield

* Silver Sands

* Duncan’s Bay

* Carey Park

* Stewart Castle

* Salt Marsh

* Davis Pen

* Wiltshire

* Hague

* Hague Housing scheme

* Hammersmith

*  Retreat Heights


*** St James:

* Greenwood

* Rose Hall

* Coral Gardens

 * R hyne Park

* Providence

At the same time, some customers in Hanover, who are served by the Great River Treatment Plant, are experiencing a disruption in their water supply due to a broken pipeline.

The affected areas include Sandy Bay, Tryall Gardens Housing Scheme, Lucea and its environs.
