NWC announces new St. Mary water restrictions

The National Water Commission is reporting that despite several instances of sporadic rainfall, its water supply systems continue to be adversely affected by low yields from its catchment areas. While much of the corporate area continues to experience regulated water supply, the Commission is now advising that the Iterboreale Water Treatment Plant in St. Mary is the latest system that will be placed under regulation. Accordingly, customers who are served by this Plant will no longer be served on a 24-hour basis. Instead, water will be regulated between the areas served from 10:00am to 4:00pm each day. As such, Annotto Bay and its environs will receive water 10:00am to 4:00pm daily while areas served by the Agualta Vale Relift Station, including Highgate and Islington, will receive water between the hours of 4:00pm and 10:00am daily. The National Water Commission apologizes for any inconvenience caused and encourages customers served by the Iterboreale Treatment Plant to conserve and store water for use until normal service is restored.
