Since drought conditions are still having an effect on outflows to several public water sources, the National Water Commission (NWC) has declared that it will start controlling water delivery to parts of Kingston and St. Andrew as of right now.
The Hermitage Dam’s water level is currently at 63.5 percent, according to a February 17 warning from the NWC, while the Mona Reservoir is at 76 percent.
The NWC is working diligently to maintain a normal water supply even as it contemplates implementing controlled supply plans, according to the commission, as inflows to numerous surface water sources across the island continue to decrease as a result of the impacts of dry conditions.
It has come to the conclusion that it must take the required steps to protect the water supply to the Kingston and St. Andrew areas due to the ongoing decline in storage at its main facilities.
As a result, according to NWC, the following daily water delivery plan will be put into effect:
Scheduled time for distribution of supply: 6am to 6pm
Areas below the Ministry of Justice include Eastwood Park Gardens, Molynes Road, Hagley Park Road, and roads that branch off, Dunrobin Avenue, Moreton Park, and St Andrew Park, as well as Waltham Park Road, Half Way Tree, Half Way Tree Road, and roads that branch off, as well as the Kencot and Cross Roads neighborhood.
Scheduled time for distribution of supply: 6pm to 6am
Areas above the Ministry of Justice include sections of Constant Spring Road and roads that branch off, such as Constant Spring Gardens, Dunrobin Avenue, Old Church Road, Annette Crescent, and a section of Waterloo. Other areas include sections of Red Hills Road and roads that branch off, as well as Manning’s Hill Road and roads that branch off, Whitehall, Roehampton, Honey Hill, Campbell Boulevard, Valentine Gardens, and Arlene Gardens.
Scheduled time for distribution of supply: 6am to 9 pm
Hope Pastures, Mona, Liguanea, as well as parts of Barbican, Kintyre, Gordon Town and Mona Heights, Goldsmith and August Town, are among the affected regions.
To provide service to clients who cannot be serviced by the piped network, the NWC announced that transportation plans would be put in place.
Additionally, it urged consumers to do their bit by practicing conservation measures in order to lessen the effects of the drought.
