Story Highlights

  • The National Water Commission (NWC) is now forced to increase its water supply restrictions to customers in the Kingston Metropolitan Area (KMA).
  • Customers served by the Hermitage/Constant Spring, Mona, Hope and Seaview water supply systems will be affected.
  • The new water supply regime will see most areas receiving water on alternating days in a bid by the water utility to both serve as many customers as possible and stretch the dwindling supplies.

In the face of a continuing rapid decline in inflows into the major Corporate Areas Water Supply Systems, the National Water Commission (NWC) is now forced to increase its water supply restrictions to customers in the Kingston Metropolitan Area (KMA) served by the Hermitage/Constant Spring, Mona, Hope and Seaview water supply systems with immediate effect.

The new water supply regime will see most areas receiving water on alternating days in a bid by the water utility to both serve as many customers as possible and stretch the dwindling supplies.

The new Water Management plan means that areas which are supplied on a Tuesday will then be supplied again on the subsequent Thursday and Saturday, and so on while the areas supplied on the Wednesday of that week will be supplied again on the subsequent Friday and Sunday. While some areas in the Corporate Area will continue to receive supplies daily either based on the system that serves them  or  where  they  are  located  on  the  network,  most  areas  will  now  receive  every  other day.  Regrettably,  despite  our  best  efforts,  some  areas  may  still  encounter  challenges  in  being supplied.

The Commission will seek to serve these areas via trucks.
