Plea from St John for water
FRUSTRATED RESIDENTS of Massiah Street and Stewart Hill, St John, are demanding that something be done to rectify the continuous water outages in the areas.
They are complaining that their taps have been dry for the past two weeks and there is little hope of getting the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) to change that any time soon.
Jevon Forde, of Stewart Hill, complained that he had not had water for days and was bathing out of a basin at a nearby standpipe.
“Days now water ain’t come. All now I want to scrub my bathroom and I can’t. The BWA truck does come when it want. Sometimes at 11 o’clock in the night, people does be waiting for water to fill up and all you’re able to get are a couple buckets,” he lamented.
