The President of the National Water Commission, NWC, Mark Barnett, says the Commission is yet to get a response from the China Harbour Engineering Company, CHEC, about a multi-million dollar claim by the state entity.

CHEC is currently doing road works across the Corporate Area on behalf of the government.

This has led to several pipes being broken which caused severe disruptions in water supplies across the Kingston Metropolitan Region.

The NWC claim is to recoup losses suffered due to the work being undertaken by the Chinese firm.

Mr Barnett says CHEC has until next week to respond.
