THE SILENCE FROM the Barbados Water Authority is deafening.

And the ears of St Joseph residents are ringing from the “bad treatment” they continue to endure, Member of Parliament for the area, Dale Marshall, claimed yesterday.

Marshall’s comments came after another day without water for many residents of the eastern parish.

Taps were dry on Christmas Day, and residents had water for less than two hours yesterday, Boxing Day.

“It is total and utter frustration now for the people of St Joseph. This was an unforgettable Christmas,” Marshall told the SUNDAY SUN while in Braggs Hill.

“This is sheer hardship my constituents have to endure,” he said.
