Innotech Aquaserve Ltd is tightening the screws on the Barbados Water Authority (BWA).

On Tuesday, the company started to remove the community tanks from critical water-scarce parishes, including St Joseph, St Andrew and St John, leaving many residents upset.

Shocked officials at the BWA said they were informed that the move was as a result of BWA defaulting on the lease payment on its headquarters at the Pine, St Michael, and that by Wednesday all of the community tanks which they were renting from Innotech, which is also the landlord, would be removed.

Both BWA’s chairman, Leodean Worrell, and general manager, Keithroy Halliday, confirmed the situation pointing out that they were informed by Innotech that the company was selling the tankers because BWA had not paid its bill. (MB)
