Parishes expected to benefit are;
St Mary, St Andrew, Portland, Clarendon, St Elizabeth and St Ann.
Additionally, the Prime Minister Holness said the project will benefit the Rainwater Harvesting in Schools initiative.
He also noted that the 2019/20 fiscal year will see more schools being equipped with rainwater harvesting systems.
He said in that regard a comprehensive survey will be undertaken for all rural schools that “currently have little or no potable water supply, with the view to install rainwater harvesting systems”.
