Emergency water outage last Friday
Due to the island’s recent drought condition, the Commonwealth Utilities Corp. has been forced to establish scheduled water hours for the next several weeks or until the approach of the rainy season in June.
At the same time, its Water Division operations personnel will also be evaluating pipelines within the affected areas for leaks to maximize supply. Updates of the water schedules will follow after the assessment of the pipelines within the affected areas.
The public is strongly advised to conserve water during this drought season to prevent CUC water wells from running dry and to also report leaks to the CUC Call Center at (670) 664-4282.
In related news, last Friday, May 10, the villages of China Town, Upper Navy Hill, Chalan Galaide, and As Felipe experienced an emergency water service interruption due to low water level in the Calhoun Tank that supplies water to these areas. CUC customers in these areas should have gotten their water services restored last Saturday, May 11.
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 its Facebook page for the latest updates (https://www.facebook.com/CommonwealthUtilitiesCorporation/). (PR)
