The state-owned National Water Commission (NWC) will continue to work assiduously to restore water supply to several affected communities in the parishes of Clarendon, Hanover, Manchester, and St Andrew.

The NWC, in a statement on Sunday (October 11), noted that its challenges varied from mechanical issues to interconnection improvement works.

In Hanover, the NWC indicated that a mechanical problem at its New Milns pumping station in the northeast section of the parish has effectively left the communities of New Milns, Welcome, Cacoon, Nyerere Farm, Haddington, Watford Hill and Woodland without the commodity.

The government-run provider said that it would work to have its services restored to the communities by Monday.

Additionally, an electrical problem at the Two Meetings treatment plant in Manchester has affected the facility’s optimal output.

While the NWC could not immediately indicate when its planned restorations would take effect, it is, however, “aiming to resolve the matter in the shortest time possible.”

The operational challenge has caused water disruptions for the communities of Two Meetings and Baileston, in Manchester; as well as Spaulding, Teak Pen and Frankfield in Clarendon.

Meanwhile, in St Andrew, the NWC explained that residents along Lady Musgrave Road and Trafalgar Park would have their water restored by 4:00 p.m. today, once work to interconnect pipelines are complete.
