The Water & Sewerage Department said it is working to provide 24-hour service to ‘various communities’ currently affected by irregular service.
Department director, Pearline Scatliffe-Leonard, made the announcement for World Water Day on Friday but did not specify the communities that will see the promised improvement.
She also did not give a timeline when residents would begin seeing 24-hour water supply.
“Currently, we do have challenges and this we expect to have remedied just as quickly as the required infrastructure is in place, or measures
Scatliffe-Leonard further said her department said ‘much work’ was done to the territory’s water network since the 2017 hurricanes and that Water & Sewerage is working with production companies in ‘replacing and upgrading water mains in various communities’.
The department director, in the meantime, seized the opportunity to promote responsible use of the commodity.
“In our daily activities, be it at home, school, work or any other area we are all stakeholders of the water that we use, and therefore similarly obligated to protect, safeguard and maintain it,” she said.
