SYSTEM CHALLENGES DUE TO THE EFFECTS OF THE HEAVY RAINS
July 18th, 2019
The National Water and Sewerage Authority (NAWASA) advises consumers served by the following water systems that due to high turbidity resulting from continuous rains; and dam blockage, their water supply has been interrupted.
A timeline for restoration cannot be determined at this time:
Annandale Water System: Annandale, Constantine, New Hampshire through to River Road through to the entire south of the island
Concord Water System: Concord, Brizan, Happy Hill, Beausejour, Cherry Hill, River Road and the Entire Town of St. George
Mardigras Water System: Mardigras, Antoine Hill, parts of St. Paul’s, Berrotte, Cobo Town, Bay Gardens, Africa, parts of Mt. Parnassus, Morne Delice, Old Westerhall
Les Avocat Water System: Minorca, Windsor Forest, Apsley, Perdmontemps, Marian, parts of St. Paul’s, Richmond Hill, Morne Jaloux, La Borie, Hope Vale, Creighton
Munich Water System: Munich, Tuilleries, Mt. Carmel, Marquis
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT OTHER SYSTEMS MAY BE ADDED TO THE LIST WITHOUT PRIOR NOTICE.
Heavy rainfall makes our system highly susceptible to dam blockages, which hinders the production of water for adequate distribution to our consumers.
Consumers with a supply are encouraged to collect and store water in clean, covered containers to last a minimum of three days.
Consumers without a supply are reminded of the need to manage their stored supply taking into consideration the immediate needs of their families and pets.
The Authority will continue to update the nation as to the restoration timeline once we are able to ascertain this.
The Authority apologizes for any inconveniences caused and thanks consumers for their patience as we work towards the delivery of a safe, adequate and reliable water supply.
