The National Water Commission (NWC) is reporting that forest fires and landslides occurring in some areas of east rural St Andrew have caused the dislocation of several sections of pipelines on its Sugar Loaf Gravity System network.

The NWC says this has resulted in water supply disruptions to the communities of Sugar Loaf, Penfield, and sections of Cameron Hill.

It says an assessment of the damage will be carried out and is assuring that every effort will be made to restore normal supply in the shortest possible time.
