DOWASCO’s PRO, Ed Registe, said Dominica’s water system remains vulnerable since the passage of Tropical Storm Erika last year.

“So again we want to reiterate that everybody should keep water in storage for at least a day or two in the event that our water systems are impacted and we have to interrupt supply,” he said.

He advised that water for consumption should be stored in clean and covered containers while water for other uses can be kept in barrels and the like.

Registe said DOWASCO will continue to monitor the weather and ensure all it can to maintain the supply of water.
