NWC defends water quality

Published:Thursday | October 18, 2018 | 10:32 AM

The National Water Commission (NWC) is dismissing as fake a message that is being circulated on social media sites regarding water quality issues in St Ann and St Mary.

In a statement, the NWC assured that the water from all its systems are in keeping with the local and international quality of standards.

The commission condemned the claims being circulated as a “most distasteful act.”

The agency is appealing to the public not to circulate this message “which is seen as an attempt by unscrupulous persons to cause public mischief and panic.”
