The management of the National Irrigation Commission Limited (NIC) wishes to advise the public that it has resolved the electrical problems which affected our Cookson 4 pumping facility, in the Bernard Lodge area of St. Catherine, which supplies water to Dynamic Environmental Management Limited (DEML), one of our customers.
DEML distributes potable water to homes in Caribbean Estates, Bernard Lodge and other housing developments in St. Catherine.
On Saturday, April 18, members of NIC’s Engineering and Technical Services Team discovered that the control board for the Cookson 4 was burnt. We immediately informed DEML of the situation, and put in interim measures to ensure some water to DEML via another irrigation supply system, which averaged 30% of the normal flow.
There was no problem with our well as erroneously reported.
We ask our customer to accept our sincere regret for the inconvenience caused by the disruption in service.
