Dry Spell Affecting Water Levels

Water rationing in St. Kitts and Nevis

St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): The current dry spell across St. Kitts and Nevis is reportedly having an impact on the water supply across the two islands.

Reports have surfaced that citizens and residents in some areas across St. Kitts have been receiving low water pressure or have seen rationing in some instances.

WINN FM reached out to the Water Manager at the Water Department for a comment on the reports but was however unsuccessful up to news.

WINN FM also reached out to the Water Manager on Nevis for a comment but was also unsuccessful.

It was at one of the National Emergency Operations Center media briefs in April that concerns were first expressed over the low levels of rainfall.

Water Engineer Charles Parris at the time gave an update on the levels in St. Kitts and Nevis during the lockdown period when water usage was elevated due to citizens being at home. He indicated that due to the lack of rainfall the department had voluntarily instituted rationing in Saddlers, Dieppe Bay, and Lodge.

He has a pretty unique view in things as he can see all three perspectives of the tenant-landlord/manager-owner relationship and has experienced it from different countries. Alexander used to work an office job in a suit and tie in the Great White North and decided that it wasn't in his best interest, so now spends as much time in the outdoors here in St. Kitts. Scuba diver, dog owner and avid kiteboarder, he's always looking for that new adventure.
