IT WAS A CASE OF you never miss the water until the well runs dry for scores of St Michael and Christ Church residents yesterday.

A rupture to a four-inch main on Saturday left people from St Lawrence in Christ Church to Bay Street, St Michael and many communities in between with dry taps. Others were reporting only a trickle yesterday evening.

And while some were philosophical and even empathised with those on the other side of the island whose taps have been dry for months, others were irate, especially after they said they were told by Barbados Water Authority (BWA) customer service representatives that there would be no relief since all water tankers were servicing the north of the island.

On Saturday, a four-inch main in Deighton, St Michael burst, cutting off supply to the immediate vicinity as well as the Bayland, Chelsea, the Garrison including the Barbados Defence Force’s headquarters, Rockley and Hastings, some parts of St Lawrence Gap and St Matthias, and surrounding areas.
