Minimal Damage To CWSA Infrastructure,60 Percent Water Supply Restored

Following the passage of Tropical Storm Matthew, the CWSA is so far reporting only minimal damage to its pipeline infrastructure.

Its technical teams were hampered this morning by continuing heavy rainfall and winds however they are presently in the field and in the mountains conducting further pipeline inspections.

Additionally, following the closure of most of its systems overnight, the CWSA has now restored water supply to about 60% of the mainland including all of the Leeward coast, with the Hermitage, Layou, Majorca, Montreal and Fancy systems being brought back online this morning.

There has also been partial restoration of the Dalaway supply and it is expected that areas from South Leeward to Calliaqua will see a gradual restoration of their water supply during the afternoon and evening today.

The Jennings, Perseverance and Sandy Bay systems that supply most of the Windward coast are scheduled to be back online also during the course of the afternoon today.

The CWSA will continue to monitor the situation and will keep the public informed of any new development.
