Thieves make off with NWC reinforcement poles in Negril

The National Water Commission (NWC) says its efforts to improve its service have been set back after thieves targeted one of its facilities in Negril.

The company says it will now have to find money to replace reinforcement poles for the perimeter fence at the number 14 waste water station in Negril, which were stolen last Thursday.

Acting President of the NWC, Mark Barnett has condemned this latest act and has expressed concern about the frequency of vandalism at its facilities island-wide.

He says theft of the NWC’s infrastructure is unconscionable and undermines the company’s efforts to optimise efficiency and maintain financial viability.

Individuals with information about the incident are being urged to contact the Westmoreland Police or call the NWC’s Security Department.
