THE National Water Commission (NWC) has advised that the restoration of normal supply to Washington Boulevard has been impacted by on-site challenges that will delay the completion of the work.

The company said a leak resulted in significant dislocation of the pipeline, requiring civil works to secure the mains before distribution can be restarted.

It is estimated that a further 24-36 hours will be required to complete the structures for securing the pipeline, the NWC said yesterday.

The projected completion time is now today at 7:00 am.

Customers in some areas, said the NWC, may experience low pressures or no water until full operations are resumed.

Affected areas include: sections of Duhaney Park, New Haven, Patrick City, sections of Cooreville Gardens, Washington Gardens, sections of Molynes Road and roads leading off.
