NWC President Mark Barnett is imploring developers to ensure that adequate water-storage facilities are in place for residents of apartment complexes.
Barnett said that under new measures put in place by the agency, in collaboration with municipal corporations, developers will be required to ensure that residents have access to ample water supply to be connected to the NWC system.
Based on the certificate of approval issued by the National Water Commission, which used by the parish councils to grant development approvals, developers will now be mandated to have adequate storage facilities before being placed on the NWC network.
Barnett says in the past the NWC discovered that some developers took shortcuts when developing storage facilities to serve apartment complexes.
The NWC will be working in conjunction with local authorities to ensure compliance among developers.
