The facility lies in North Central Clarendon, in the community of Ashley. Ashley is situated
in the Mocho Division and The Member of Parliament for the area is Pearnel Charles.
Background and Purpose:
Ashley houses a catchment facility that had a broken perimeter fencing, a catchment area in need of repairs and an uncovered tank. These problems rendered the water stored in this facility unsafe for human consumption as it allowed external forces to contaminate the water. Some of these external forces included animals, animal excretions and humans. Due to the contaminated water supply, the Government of Jamaica made the decision to repair the problems mentioned above. These repairs allowed the community of Ashley to receive a reliable source of potable (drinkable) water.
The outputs of the project were newly repaired and installed fencing, repaired catchment area and a concrete tank covering.
Operator of the System:
The Clarendon Parish Council is responsible for operating and maintaining the catchment facility.
Status and Cost:
The project was completed at a cost of $1.450 million.
This project started on May 19, 2014 and ended on June 13, 2014.
Project Management Team:
The project management team comprised of Mr. Patrick Reid from Rural Water Supply.
