BWA: Water to flow again soon
Water will soon be flowing again for residents recently affected by outages. This assurance has come from the Barbados Water Authority (BWA).
BWA’s marketing officer Yvette Harris-Griffith said water should be restored to all the affected areas, while cautioning that pressure might be low.
She said while the authority did not get any reports indicating that customers were still experiencing outages, she appealed to those who were still not receiving water to make a report as soon as possible.’
“If there are customers in any areas still experiencing low pressure, the BWA is asking them to bear with us. Normal pressure is expected to gradually return to normal in the affected areas,” Harris-Griffith said in a statement. “Any districts where residents are still experiencing outages, they can notify the authority by calling the customer service centre. Representatives are available to take calls every day, including bank holidays, between 8:30 a.m. and 12 midnight.”
On Thursday the authority’s desalination plant at Ionics Freshwater Limited, Spring Garden Highway, St Michael, was off-line and hundreds of Barbadians across the island experienced water outages. (SB)
