The National Water Commission (NWC) is reminding customers served by the Logwood system in Hanover to store water to conserve as much as possible because inflows are declining.

According to the NWC, there has been an 80 per cent decline in raw water inflows.

The agency says as a result customers served by Hanover's Logwood system will continue to experience either low water pressure or periods without piped water.

The affected areas include West Land Mountain, Red Ground and West End, Negril.

The NWC says it has been employing a number of strategies including extension of the supply from Great River to Green Island and regulation to ensure a more equitable distribution of the available water supply.
