KINGSTON, Jamaica — High turbidity, the level of sediments in water, is affecting the delivery to customers in St James and Hanover, says the National Water Commission (NWC).

As a result residents in  sections of both parishes served by the Great River Treatment Plant in St James will be without water today.

The affected areas include Catherine Hall, West Green, Felicity, Mango Walk, Glendevon, Salt Spring, Brandon Hill, Rosemount, Cornwall Courts, Rose Heights, Farm Heights, Sun Valley Road, Rectory Drive, Catherine Mount, Albion, Reading Heights, Anchovy, Childermas, Lethe, sections of Comfort Hall, Wiltshire, Guava Walk, Spring Gardens, Belmont, Tower Hill, Moy Hall and Unity Hall in St James.

Additionally, Hopewell, Sandy Bay and sections of Lucea in Hanover will be without water.

The problem should be fixed by tomorrow, the NWC said.



Do you think an increase in JUTC bus fares is justified at this time?
