Emergency water service interruption for Gualo Rai area

The Commonwealth Utilities Corp. would like to inform the general public that there is currently an emergency water service interruption in the Gualo Rai area.

The cause of the interruption is due to various leaks causing low water level in the tanks. CUC water and leak detection personnel are currently making their investigations to determine the location of the leaks. Once found, repairs will be made and water services should return back to normal soon thereafter. Updates will follow as soon as they are available.

Customers are advised to conserve water at this time and inform the CUC Call Center should they know of any leaks. CUC apologizes for any inconvenience it may have caused.

CUC continues to work diligently to minimize any inconvenience to its customers. For more information, contact the CUC Customer Call Center (664-4282) or monitor CUC’s Facebook page for the latest updates ( (PR)
