Several NWC systems still out of service

Several National Water Commission (NWC) supply systems are still out of operation following last weekend's rains.
They are in St. Thomas, St. Catherine and Clarendon.
The NWC said the systems have been affected by blockages, pipe dislocation, high turbidity as well as broken mains.      
In a statement Monday afternoon, the Water Commission said supply facilities still out of operation include those in Port Morant, Trinityville and Windsor Castle in St. Thomas.
In St. Catherine, the affected facilities are the Glengoffe and Goffe Road stations, Berkshire Hall Treatment Plant as well as the Waugh Hill Relift Station.      
In Clarendon, the affected systems are the Kellits Treatment Plant as well as the Peace River and Frankfield Spring facilities.
Broken main on Mandela Highway 
Meanwhile, for the second time in less than a week, a section of the National Water Commission's transmission main on the Mandela Highway has been damaged due to road works.
As a result, customers along Washington Boulevard and surrounding areas will experience low pressure, intermittent supply or no water.
Affected areas include Cooreville Gardens as well as sections of  Patrick City and  Duhaney Park.
The NWC had only last week completed repairs to another pipeline break to the 18-inch transmission main.
