Water disruption for Portmore, Corporate Area next week
KINGSTON, Jamaica -- Sections of Portmore and the Corporate Area will be without water or have very low water pressure for two days next week.
In a news release Saturday, the National Water Commission (NWC) said this disruption in water services will be due to repair work that is scheduled for the Tulloch Springs/Rio Cobre Pipeline between Monday (April 14) and Tuesday (April 15).
The areas to be affected include: Eltham Park, Keystone, Simons, Kent Village, sections of Portmore including Hamilton Gardens, Christian Gardens and Pen, Newland Road, Cumberland, Cedar Grove, Edgewater, Waterford, Gregory Park, Braeton, Independence City, and Hellshire. The areas to be affected in Kingston include Spanish Town Road, Marcus Garvey Drive, Molynes Road, Washington Boulevard, and sections of downtown Kingston.
The NWC therefore moved to urge residents to store enough water for the 48-hour period that they will experience this disruption.
