NWC working to streamline water supply and trucking schedules amidst drought

by July 22nd, 2019

The National Water Commission NWC, says it’s working to streamline its water supply and trucking schedules, to better respond to the various areas being affected by drought.

According to the water company, supply systems in the Corporate Area continue to be impacted by the ongoing dry conditions.

The Mona reservoir now stands at 33 percent of capacity, while the Hermitage Dam is at 76 percent.

The National Water Commission notes that despite intermittent showers in a few areas, the water inflows at two of the entity’s largest facilities Mona and Constant spring and several rural systems are still declining.

The water agency says while this is in keeping with the Meteorological Office’s forecast for the dry spell to extend into August- September , it poses significant challenges to the NWC’s bid to provide water supply to the various communities across the Corporate Area.

The public is being urged to brace for possible disruptions in their water supply, including lower water pressures, adjustments in the current water supply regulations and no water conditions in the areas that are worst impacted.

The NWC says it is working to streamline its water supply and trucking schedules to better respond to the various areas that are being affected and is assuring its customers that every effort is being made to provide water supply to them in a bid to guarantee their daily livelihood.
