Mitigating measures continue as screw lift pump remains inoperative
The Wastewater Division (WWD) of the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) continues to monitor and manage a series of mitigating measures to keep wastewater levels low and prevent an increase of overflows in the troubled areas on the south coast.
This follows the failure of one of two screw lift pumps at the South Coast Sewage Treatment Plant (SCSTP) on Wednesday.
As teams from the BWA work towards getting the screw lift pump operational, the WWD has put several auxiliary trash pumps and one submersible pump in place to compensate for the loss of the screw lift.
As this is a dynamic situation, the BWA will continue to provide updates as the situation progresses. (PR)
