For the first time in decades residents of Platfield, St. Mary will have potable water.
This as the Platfield Rural Water Upgrading Works are to be completed by year end.
The Platfield project which is being undertaken by the Government of Jamaica through the Rural Water Supply Limited (RWSL), will deliver water to approximately 3,000 residents in Platfield, Mount Vernon, Clarks Town and adjoining districts.
The approximate cost for the project is $96-million.
It will include the design and installation of a dam wall, a loading bay for water catchment and a chlorination system.
Minister without Portfolio with responsibility for water, Pearnel Charles Junior, during a tour of water systems in Gibbs Hill, Maroon Town, and Top Leinster last Thursday, says there is a simple message that the Government is sending across Jamaica.
He says the government is more concerned about results rather than talking about things.
