The National Water and Sewerage Authority (NAWASA) advises consumers in elevated communities served by the Peggy’s Whim Water System that due to dam blockage resulting from continuous rains, they may experience low water pressure and in some cases interruptions in supply, as one of the dams serving the system is currently down.
A timeline for restoration cannot be determined at this time:
- Peggy’s Whim serves: Peggy’s Whim, Hermitage, River Sallee, Chantimelle, Sauteurs, Mt. Rose, Bathway, Rose Hill, Conference, Tivoli, Carrierre, Dunfermline, St. John’s and parts of Samaritain.
Heavy rainfall makes our systems 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 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.
