Polly Septic offers way out
Six weeks ago, Murray Chandler, owner of Polly Septic Service & Equipment Rentals, offered to help the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) solve the South Coast sewage crisis.
He said the long-standing problem could have been fixed in a week.
“We could have had that rectified already. Within one week we could have had that sorted out. I told the BWA a month ago I could solve the problem. They never had the decency to reply to my call,” Chandler told the SATURDAY SUN yesterday.
However, BWA rapid response and communications manager Joy Ann Haigh said the authority was willing to listen to solutions on the sewage issue.
“It should be noted that the BWA, at no time would refuse to listen to any individual who is qualified or specialised in the area we are having the problems with and we are willing to listen,” Haigh said
Chandler believes his company could still solve the problem.
“And I’m not charging any million or half-a-million dollars, but I didn’t get any reply, so I figured they didn’t need my service,” he said.
Chandler said his company was responsible for major projects such as the implosion of the Hilton Hotel in 1999, as well as recovery efforts at both the Barbados Light & Power property collapse in 2003 and the Arch Cot tragedy in 2007. (AD)
