There is now a new water supply schedule for Kingston and St Andrew in place.

The measure began today as the National Water Commission, NWC, takes steps to preserve water supply to the Corporate Area amidst a drought facing the country.
NWC says inflows to a number of surface water sources across the island continue to decline due to drought conditions.
The NWC says communities above the ministry of justice, around the Constant Spring and Queens-Borough areas, will receive water supply from 6 pm to 6 a-m, while areas below the ministry, including Half Way Tree and Cross Roads, there will be supplied from 6 am to 6pm.
Meanwhile, areas in the vicinity of Papine including Mona Heights and August Town will have supply from 6 am to 9 pm.
The NWC adds that it is also considering the implementation of regulated supply schedules and other mitigating methods across the island in light of the drought.
