The National Water Commission, NWC, is warning customers to brace for more restrictions.
NWC’s Corporate Communications Manager, Charles Buchanan, says the Meteorological Office has projected that the drought will continue through to September.
The NWC says the drought conditions across the island, are still impacting its water supply systems in the Corporate Area.
He says the Mona Reservoir is just over 33% of its capacity, the Hermitage at 76%, and some like the Mountain House in Violet Bank are at zero.
He says 90% of the NWC’s water systems have been severely impacted.
This is why the NWC is warning its customers to anticipate possible disruptions, especially in the areas most affected.
The NWC says they are streamlining water supply and trucking schedules to better respond to the various areas being affected.
The NWC is reminding customers to consider the recommendations to reduce and re-use water and also to replace leaky pipes.
Mr. Buchanan also says the NWC is concerned about what he says are extreme droughts followed by extreme weather which causes flooding.
