NWC lifts water prohibition order

The National Water Commission (NWC) today lifted the prohibition order imposed against the use of water for non-essential purposes.

The order had been imposed earlier this year due to the severe drought conditions that affected sections of the island for several months.

The order made it a prosecutable offense to use excessive amounts of water for non-essential purposes.

In a release today, NWC President Mark Barnett said that recent rainfall and the improved storage levels at the main storage reservoirs no longer warrant the imposition of the prohibition order- hence the decision to lift it.
