Update Major Failure on Critical Water Mains
The Water and Sewerage Corporation wish to provide the following update to its customers and the general public regarding ongoing repair works on a critical water main located on Nassau Street just south of West Bay Street. The WSC team assigned has located the source of the water main failure and repair works are presently in progress. Due to the complexity of the works involved, it is not anticipated that these works will be completed until late this evening. In the interim, WSC has implemented various system adjustments to provide some water supply to the affected areas but notes that this supply will be at a significantly reduced service level.
This critical water main serves over 30% of the island; generally, that portion of New Providence north of Wulff Road from Goodman’s Bay in the west to Village Road in the east. This includes but is not limited to the following areas: Palmdale, Bain and Grants Town, Big Pond, Fort Fincastle, portions of Shirley Street, Potter’s Cay Dock, St. Alban’s Drive and Highland Terrace.
WSC sincerely apologizes for the inconvenience caused, and expresses our appreciation and thanks for your patience.
