Sewage fix soon

The South Coast sewage crisis is nearing an end, Minister of Energy and Water Resources Wilfred Abrahams has promised Barbadians.

He and several high-ranking officials responsible for fixing the critical issue, including Barbados Water Authority (BWA) general manager Keithroy Halliday, updated the public yesterday.

Among the announcements were:

• Since the diversion of filtered waste water into the six injection wells from last Thursday, there have been no overflows on the streets.

• Excavation starts today to fix the breached lines by the entrance of the Graeme Hall Nature Sanctuary.

• A week later, more excavation will begin around the corner at Worthing by the old Scotiabank building.

• Work will be on a 24-hour basis to meet the estimated four to six-week deadline.

• Over 1 000 sewerage connections are being investigated to see if they are legal. (TG)
