Public Relations Officer of the Dominica Water and Sewage Company (DOWASCO), Edward Registe, has stated that all efforts are being made by the company to restore water to several communities across the island.
Following the passage of Hurricane Irma earlier this week and the inclement weather that it brought to Dominica, a few of DOWASCO’s water systems had to be shut down and others temporarily closed.
“DOWASCO would like to apologize to the residents of the following communities for the intermittent interruption in their water supplies; Trafalgar, Fond Cannie, Delices, Boetica, Leopoldville, and Wall House. These communities are without water for more than twenty-four hours,” Registe said.
He noted that the company has done some “temporary arrangements” so Trafalgar and Fond Cannie can “have water a little bit later down this evening.”
He added that the process has already begun to restore water in the areas of Wall House and Leopoldville.
According to Registe, in Boetica and Delices there may be some form of electrical pump issue that has caused the water to be off, and restoration “might be till tomorrow morning.”
The PRO Officer reiterated: “Every effort is being made to restore water to these affected areas in the quickest possible time, and we ask residents to be patient with our efforts to restore water, and of course DOWASCO regrets any inconvenience caused and we thank residents for their patience.”
