With its water resources under stress from heavy usage, Barbados needs to exploit rain, seawater and recycled water more. Minister of Agriculture, Food, Fisheries and Water Resource Management Dr David Estwick made this point yesterday. He was talking to the media during the handing over of the Newcastle Irrigation Project in St John. “The reality is that we must execute water harvesting, we must execute the reuse of treated water and then the third element is we must look now to augment our desalination capability,” he said. According to Estwick, “Barbados is suffering from a serious challenge with respect to its water and water management”. (AH)
