BWA South Coast pumps soon ready

THOSE SEVERE PROBLEMS that plagued the South Coast Sewerage Project last year should be solved by month-end.

The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) has almost completed the overhaul of its wastewater treatment and sewerage systems, as specially imported replacement pumps get set to go online at the South Coast Sewerage Treatment Plant at Graeme Hall, Christ Church.

“Four new pumps are expected to replace the failing machines at the plant, the BWA’s Wastewater Division manager, Patricia Inniss, told the SUNDAY SUN.

The special equipment was sourced and manufactured in Sweden, after numerous problems plagued the South Coast project late last year, leading to effluent flowing in the streets of Worthing, Christ Church, which led to water quality issues on the Worthing Beach, and its subsequent closure for four days. In addition, the tourism sector was also affected, with a number of visitors leaving their places of accommodation.
