Water disruptions in sections of St Catherine, Kingston
Several communities in Portmore, St Catherine and sections of Kingston will be without water today.
The National Water Commission (NWC) says water supply will be disrupted as a result of the dislocation of the 30 inch trunk main in at least two locations along the Rio Cobre/Tulloch Springs Water Supply Pipeline yesterday afternoon.
The NWC says initial reports indicate that the pipeline was damaged by blasting operations conducted by contractors working on the North/South Highway.
The areas to be affected by the disruptions include:
Sections of downtown Kingston
Spanish Town Road
Marcus Garvey Drive
Washington Boulevard and all roads leading off
The NWC says an investigation is underway into the cause and extent of the damage.
The commission says it has engaged a contractor and has taken immediate steps to restore the pipeline in the shortest possible time.
