Dry taps a turn-off
DRY TAPS continue to run down the patience of residents in Redmans Village, St Thomas, and have cost at least one farmer thousands of dollars in livestock.
They expressed their frustrations yesterday over water outages they said they have been experiencing since last December.
“The water was on and off from Christmas Day,” said small farmer Curtis Knight, who was unscrewing a 250-gallon tank on his farm to allow a worker at the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) to run a hose from the tanker to his tank.
“It’s ridiculous, man. When you keeping pigs, water is a must. I just lost a pregnant sow that was going to drop within eight days because I didn’t have no water,” he said. (SB)
