Jamaica: 5,000 More Get Running Water

Approximately nine years after construction started on a water-distribution system in Hanover Eastern, it was finally commissioned into service on Saturday, with Prime Minister Andrew Holness doing the honours.

A total of 5,000 residents from the districts of Claremont, Jericho, Cascade, Retrieve, and Pondside will now have access to potable water in their homes.

The National Water Commission (NWC) project, valued at more than J$400 million, will route water from the Great River Treatment Facility to the Paradise Pumping Station. Water will then be distributed, through a six-inch pipeline, from the Paradise Pumping Station to a storage facility in German Hill.
