NAWASA Seeing Improvements In Water Supply 

PR – The National Water & Sewerage Authority  (NAWASA) is seeing improvements in water production and distribution from most water  treatment plants in the Parishes of St. Andrew, St. David, and St. George, which were affected by  this year’s dry season and drought. These improvements are directly linked to the recent rains. 

The Annandale Water Treatment Plant has recovered to about 88% of its design capacity, and  extraction of water from the Grand Etang Lake has been suspended. The Les Avocats, Petite  Etang, and Vendome Water Systems are returning to their design capacities, allowing the  Authority to distribute water to higher elevated consumers along the distribution network. As a  result of these improvements, NAWASA has begun to relax valve regulation and reduce water  truck distribution to affected communities. 

The Authority is in communication with the Meteorological Office and continues to monitor  production daily. We confirm that the Water Restrictions are still in effect and will remain so until  we are satisfied that water production has returned to design capacity. Consumers are therefore  urged to continue their water conservation efforts. 

With predictions for an above-normal hurricane season, NAWASA urges everyone to remain  vigilant. The Authority advises the population to acquire water storage facilities and manage their  water supply effectively, as disasters can result in infrastructural damage. 

NAWASA thanks our consumers for their patience and understanding during this challenging  period and assures everyone that we remain committed to providing access to potable water  despite the ongoing difficulties.
