Councillor for the Wakefield Division in Trelawny, Jonathan Bartley, is appealing to the National Water Commission (NWC) to address the water woes of residents in Bounty Hall, who have been without the commodity for over two weeks.

The councillor, who is a former worker of the NWC, says there is an issue with the way in which water is being distributed in the area.

He says the situation has reached crisis level, which he says is unfair to residents since there is an adequate supply of water in the area.

Bartley claims that water is being pumped from the area to other parishes while residents in Bounty Hall are suffering.

He dismissed suggestions that the lack of water is due to turbidity at NWC facilities that supply the area.
