KINGSTON, Jamaica — A number of communities in central and eastern parishes are experiencing disruptions in their water supply due to the persistent trough, which continues to influence the weather conditions across the island.
The National Water Commission (NWC) has advised that, while a number of its major systems remain in operation, the heavy rainfall has resulted in disruptions in power supply and high turbidity issues, which have forced the shutdown of water treatment facilities in several parishes. 
Currently, facilities that are experiencing disruptions include:

Clarendon: Peace River, Kellits, Aenon Town, Rhymesbury, Mineral Heights and Rock River 

St Mary: White River, George’s Spring, Palmetto Grove, Rock Spring and Lucky Hill, 

St Catherine: Spanish Town Treatment Plant, Kitson Town, Guy’s Hill, Tulloch Spring and Goldmine 

Portland: Hope Bay, Mount Pleasant

St Ann: Thatch Hill and Steer Town 

Kingston and St Andrew: Hope Filter Plant and Rock Hall 
NWC said it will continue to monitor these and other systems over the next 24 hours in the event that further changes occur.  

The company also apologised for any inconvenience caused and is assuring customers that every effort is being made to restore regular water supply within the shortest possible time.
