NWC to meet with Bounty Hall residents in Trelawny to address water woes

TRELAWNY, Jamaica -- Representatives of the National Water Commission (NWC) will on Wednesday afternoon meet with residents of Bounty Hall in Trelawny to address water woes facing that community.

The meeting is scheduled to be held at the Bounty Hall Primary School at 5:00 pm.

The NWC is expected to outline their short and long-term plans to provide water to the community.

Tuesday morning, several Bounty Hall residents staged a demonstration to draw attention to the lack of piped water in their community.

The residents claimed that their taps have been without the precious commodity for the last eight weeks despite the community being home to a massive reservoir and sitting between two major water supply areas, the Queen of Spain Valleys and Martha Brae.

Reaching their boiling point, the residents peacefully took to the streets, while being very vocal about the challenges they are facing.
