MORE THAN 30 DISTRICTS in St Lucy and St Peter will be without water for several hours each day when the Half Acre reservoir is closed.

According to a release from the Barbados Water Authority (BWA), the reservoir will be closed from 10 p.m. Tuesday until 4 a.m. Wednesday due to “exceedingly low water levels”.

The shutdown will continue daily until further notice to allow the Lamberts and Boscobel reservoirs to replenish.

As a result, residents in these parishes will experience very low water pressure or outages.

The affected areas in St Lucy include: Colleton, Clinketts, Half Moon Fort, Sutherland, Fustic Village, Checker Hall, Maycock, Broomfield, Friendly Hall, Husbands, Harrison, Crab Hill, Babylon Bourbon, Trents, Swampy Town, Nessfield, Hannays, Salmond, Grape Hall, Cluffs, Greenidge, Bright Hall, Connell Town, Roaches, Flat Field, Northumberland, River Bay, Hope, Harris, Spring Hall, Bishops, Rockfield and surrounding districts.

Customers in Six Mens, St Peter may also be impacted.  

Residents in these areas and surrounding districts are advised to store water for the duration of these outages.  

The Barbados Water Authority regrets the inconvenience of these disruptions and would like to assure its valued customers of its commitment to the continuous delivery of water supply to all.  (PR)
