A BREATH OF fresh air should soon be coming to Worthing, Christ Church.
Likewise, the days of treated effluent flowing into the sea near the now-closed Worthing Beach from the Graeme Hall Swamp should also soon be a thing of the past.
That’s because a Barbados Water Authority team – along with Ward Drilling and Morenco, ably assisted by equipment from C.O.Williams Construction – yesterday laid an 18-inch ductile iron pipe from the treatment plant to the beach.
There is three times that length of 16 millimetre thick pipeline already placed outside the reef, and that length again from the beach to the reef already in the sea.
The pipeline will be connected to the iron pipe tomorrow, Thursday, December 13, to allow the treated effluent to flow out to sea beyond the breakwater. (SP)
