Llandewey wants NWC to repair playing field

Contributed When the Yallahs Pipeline broke in October the water damaged the community's playing field.

The Llandewey Benevolent Society said it plans to engage the National Water Commission (NWC) in talks to fix the community's playing field that was destroyed by gushing water from the Yallahs pipeline that was ruptured in October.

Horace Ogilvie, public relations officer for the group, said that the organisation plans to meet with Community Development Committee on December 10 to decide how will they engage the NWC on the matter.

When the pipeline ruptured last month, the playing field in Llandewey was destroyed after the gushing water created a trench in the middle.

The NWC yesterday said that the 19-mile long Yallahs pipeline is now back in operation. However, the commission did not indicate what steps would be taken to repair the playing field.

The pipeline serves hundreds of residents in the Llandewey valley in St Thomas as well as thousands more in the Corporate Area of Kingston and St Andrew, via the Mona Reservoir.
