Estwick puts BWA staff on notice
MINISTER OF AGRICULTURE and Water Resources Dr David Estwick has warned employees of the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) that below-par service will have to be a thing of the past with the Fair Trading Commission (FTC) regulating the utility.
Against the backdrop of FTC penalties for loss of service, delays in service and other problems faced by customers of utilities it regulates, Estwick said BWA staff would have to “step up to the plate” once the FTC fully took up the mandate for the utility.
That should mean speedier repairs to broken water mains, he indicated.
“If you are going to have the inputs, you can’t have a water main burst for ten weeks.” (TY)
