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.
