The National Water Commission (NWC) says customers in some sections of St Mary and St Catherine are currently without their regular water supply.

It says this is because of a power supply failure affecting operations at both the Industry Pen and Goldmine Water Treatment facilities.

Affected areas in St Mary are: Industry Pen Housing Scheme and Tree Hills District.

In St Catherine, affected areas include:  Bellas Gate, Cocoa Ridge, Content, Sandy Ground, Marlie Hill, Wood Hall, Brown`s Hall and Gravel Hill.

Meanwhile, customers served by the Blackstonedge pumping station in St Ann are experiencing a disruption in service due to a broken main and turbidity levels affecting the facility.

 Areas impacted include Blackstonedge and Whitehall.

The NWC says regular water supply will resume as soon as these problems are corrected.
