CWSA still facing water stress

Despite a few showers since the onset of the 2024 hurricane season, the Central Water and Sewerage Authority (CWSA), said it is still facing some stress at water catchments, and disruptions of the supply have had to continue in some communities.

Yesterday June 17, 2024, residents at Largo Height and Green Hill faced a scheduled disruption to their water supply from 9:58 a.m to 5:00 p.m due to the ongoing dry spell.

These two communities also had their supply disrupted on Sunday June 16, 2024, from 3:13 p.m to 6:00 p.m

On Monday, Public Relations Officer of the CWSA, Joan Ryan, explained to SEARCHLIGHT that these disruptions were related to the ongoing dry spell, despite the start to the wet season.

“Right now we are currently monitoring the system. We don’t know what the weather would be like tonight.”

Ryan said since the May 14, 2024, press conference where it was revealed that several of the main catchments were under stress, the CWSA team has been able to supply water to more residents as there have been some rains since the start of the hurricane season on June 1.

“I wouldn’t say the rivers are replenished, they are not, but we have been able to supply. Over the weekend we had to disrupt the water supply from the Mamoon system so Largo Height and those areas up there were affected,” she explained.

Ryan said an official statement would be released by the CWSA today June 18, 2024, about the status of their systems which continue to be monitored.
