Grease in the sewers
THE BARBADOS WATER AUTHORITY (BWA) is still working on correcting last year’s South Coast sewage fiasco.
But even as the agency continues its post-mortem of the debacle, it is becoming clear that Barbadians played a role in the overflows.
Yesterday morning, BWA personnel were hard at work flushing sewerage lines in Rendezvous, Christ Church.
The director of the BWA’s Waste Water Recovery Programme, Patricia Inniss, said this action was part of a scheduled and systematic flushing programme to reduce the chances of overflow as much as was possible.
