KINGSTON, Jamaica - The National Water Commission (NWC) has increased water trucking operations in Trelawny, particularly Stewart Town, after residents blocked roads in the community yesterday.
NWC representatives told residents that the hilly terrain prevented their trucks from delivering water after regular supply to the area was disrupted in early February due to mechanical problems at a facility in the parish.
However, the NNWC said that it will now use smaller trucks which will be better able to serve the area until the necessary repairs are made at the downed facility.
