BWA begins nightly shut-offs
The Barbados Water Authority started nightly shut-offs from tonight in an effort to relive the customers in St Joseph.
In a media release yesterday the BWA said the nightly shut-offs on the transmission mains between Bowmanston and Golden Ridge, as well as from Applewhaites to Golden Ridge in order to effect the recharge of the Golden Ridge Reservoirs. It is anticipated that this intermediate measure will allow the Golden Ridge Reservoirs to recover overnight to allow for longer hours of pumping to Castle Grant during the daytime.
It advised its customers that the cut off will start from 9:00 p.m until 4:00 a.m until further notice.
