There are a number of areas without water today. That's because the Barbados Water Authority is carrying out emergency work on a main leading from the Belle Pumping Station. work started around 10 a.m and 2 p.m.  This work may cause water outages to areas in St Michael, including Salters, Haggatt Hall, Howells & Ivy, My Lord’s Hill, Tichbourne, Two Mile Hill, Government Hill, the Pine, Pine Gardens, Brittons Hill, and the immediate surrounding areas. A release from the BWA stated that once work is completed, residents in the affected areas will begin to receive water on a phased basis until the supply to all areas returns to normal.   The BWA is also today repairing a burst on a four-inch main in Cane Vale, Christ Church.  The Authority has dispatched water tankers to assist persons in the affected areas.
