Dry spell impacting water supply in St Mary

September 06, 2022
Residents from across several west Kingston communities now access water from just one source -– a standpipe near the St Anne's Catholic Church.

The National Water Commission (NWC) is advising its customers that a number of its water supply systems in St Mary are still being impacted by a prolonged dry spell.  

The NWC says that customers in some sections of the parish will periodically experience low to no water conditions until there is an improvement in the daily inflows. 

   Customers within the affected areas are being urged to store water to reduce the impact that this may cause.

The affected areas are: Fontabelle, Jacks River, Hunts Town,Wellington, Dressikie, Ramble, Platfield, Clarke Castle, Port Maria, Port Maria H/S, Sandside, Albion Mountain, Grey Street, Church Street, Bailey’s Vale, Trinity, Cambridge, Free Hill, Oxford, and parts of Cox Street 

The NWC also says it has commenced the trucking of water to the affected communities.  

Customers may also make requests for trucked delivery as necessary via 888-225-5692, the NWC Webchat at nwcjamaica.com or email at customercare@nwc.com.jm.
