KINGSTON, Jamaica — Residents in sections of St Catherine and the Corporate Area are without regular water supply due to electrical problems affecting two systems.

The Tulloch Springs system is experiencing power supply issues resulting in low water pressure or no water in areas served by the system.

The affected areas include Spanish Town Road and all roads leading off, Molynes Road and all roads leading off, Washington Boulevard and all roads leading off, Sections of Downtown Kingston, Kent Village, Hamilton Gardens, Christian Gardens, Christian Pen, Newland Road, Cumberland, Cedar Grove, Edgewater, Waterford, Gregory Park, Braeton, Independence City, Hellshire, Eltham Acres, Eltham, Greendale, Keystone, St Jago Gardens, Patten Park, Richard Hall, Waterloo Gardens and Ensom Acres.

The National Water Commission (NWC) says it is working to restore normal water supply to these areas as soon as possible.

Additionally, The York Street booster pump and the White River system, which both serve customers in St Catherine, are out of operation due to electrical problems.

Customers who are served by these systems, including those in York Street, Russell Pen, sections of Treadways and Time and Patience, will be without regular water supply.
