#JamaicaGleaner #Sewer #SewageWater #NWC #harbourView #StAndrew SEPTEMBER 19, 2023: Tragedy struck on a sewage-filled Harbour View street in St Andrew last Tuesday after a motorist lost control of his vehicle while trying to navigate the mucky roadway. The vehicle being driven by Devon Edwards, who lived in Port Royal, reportedly crashed into a utility pole near Harbour Drive. Residents, commuters and people who do business in Harbour View have since stepped up their calls for a more astute response from the National Water Commission (NWC) to the sewage overflow problem in the area. The issue surrounds the aged 200mm diameter asbestos cement sewers in the area, a section of which has apparently collapsed, resulting in sewer blockages and overflow from manholes.
