The Company is seeking to assure customers that water supply will be restored to the affected communities as soon as the repaired pipeline is fully secured.

Areas affected include: sections of Norbrook, Cherry Gardens, Sections of Barbican, Russell Heights, Lower Jacks Hill, Jacks Hill Road, Hyperion Avenue, Bracknell Avenue, Tavistock, and surrounding areas.

NWC has estimated restoration time to be Saturday, September 19 at midday.
