Effective yesterday, Saturday, July 4 the National Water Commission (NWC) once again implemented water supply restrictions for areas within corporate Jamaica.  The areas are served by the Seaview Treatment Plant in St Andrew.

According to the commission, the regulations become necessary due to a 50% decline from the normal output levels of 2.8 million gallons of water per day at the plant, which is attributable to the worsening dry spell. And so, the ability to supply all customers during their original service times has been severely impacted – resulting in unplanned disruptions and low pressures within the network. Understanding this, customers within the Stony Hill and Sherbourne areas are slated to be served on alternate days

NWC is further noting that the daily regulation will begin at 6:00 am and will remain in effect until 8:00 pm.


Areas affected today are: 

Airy Castle Road, Seaview Road, Brooks Level Road, Boone Hall, Hermitage Dam Road, Montgomery Road, Lipscombe Road, Tommy Hill, Mount Ogle, Lawrence Tavern, Bridgemount, Golden Spring, Temple Hall

While the Alternate days of supply will continue on Monday, July 6, and remain in effect until supply has increased.
