NWC Says Several Lines Affected By Heavy Rains


The National Water Commission, NWC, is reporting that high turbidity issues, blocked intakes, and dislocated pipelines have forced the continued shutdown of a number of its water supply facilities in the eastern end of the island.

The NWC says these issues, which have resulted from the persistent and severe rainfall, have disrupted regular water supply operations.

The company is advising that in light of the intense and continuous rainfall experienced, there may be other affected systems, these will be updated as soon as access to the locations is possible.

The public is being assured that normal operations will be restored as soon as the conditions are favourable for water supply distribution.
