The National Water and Sewerage Authority (NAWASA) advises consumers that due to a significantly low water level from the Les Avocat Dam, the Authority is forced to shut off the water supply to the Richmond Hill Storage Tank.
Communities affected by this closure include Richmond Hill, Morne Jaloux, Marian, White Gun, Defoo, Creighton, parts of Parade, and surrounding communities in the parish of St. George.
NAWASA is committed to reviewing the water supply from the source and, if feasible, will resume operations by 6:00 a.m. on Monday, February 12th, 2024.
To minimize inconvenience during this period, we recommend that consumers take proactive measures by storing water supply for at least three (3) days. Please consider the immediate needs of your families and pets during this time.
NAWASA would like to emphasize to consumers that we are in the dry season, and the limited rainfall during this period may pose challenges.
The Authority apologizes for any inconveniences likely to be caused and thanks consumers for their patience as we work towards delivering a safe, adequate, and reliable water supply.
