State Minister in the MICAF Super Ministry, and Member of Parliament for South Western St. Elizabeth, Floyd Green, has brought water to a number of communities that had none before, or had poor connection to the water system in the Constituency.
In conjunction with the National Water Commission (NWC), a new new ten inch pipeline from Williamsfield to Hopewell has been finished.
That pipeline will bolster the water supply to Greenfield, Hill Top, Pondside, Stonefield, Cherry Garden and Vineyard.
This is Phase 1 of a three part program to bring water to Fort Charles
A new 2 inch pipeline has also been installed in the Hopewell to Williamsfield area.
Pipes are also been changed in Pondside and Stonefield to ensure that more of those communities have regular access to water.
In the coming weeks a new connection will be done in Content to address the water woes in Slipe. Additionally, some of the pipes from the Burnt Savannah water distribution System will be changed to minimize the issues of leaks and low water pressure to those connected to the system.
Brucefield to Fullerswood, will also be getting much needed upgrades to help Brucefield and Arlington.
Regularising water connection
Teams from the NWC will be visiting Sandy Bank and Top Flagaman sometime this week to continue the work in those areas to help regularise the water supply.
Work will be done in Ffyes Pen Sellington and Fustic grove area as well.
The completion of the laying of pipes in the Dingent, Lancewood, and Bailey Ground areas and the main transmission line into Black River is well underway.
The Southern belt of St. Elizabeth has traditionally been plagued by Water problems for many of its residents. The improvement in the water distribution systems across the South Western St. Elizabeth constituency will go a tremendous way to easing the suffering of thousands of people living there.
