Maintenance at Ionics, outages may occur
Some residents in the western and central parts of Barbados may experience water outages or low pressure as a result of maintenance at Ionics Freshwater Limited.
The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) advises the public work started yesterday, and the plant, located at Spring Garden, St Michael, is still offline.
Residents in the St Thomas districts of Cane Garden, Arthur Seat, Welches Heights, Bagatelle Park, Bagatelle Gardens, Melrose, Redman’s Village, Edgehill, Welches Terrace, Padmore Village and the surrounding areas, as well as Husbands, Oxnards, Prior Park, Apes Hill, Lower Mount Standfast, The Garden and Weston in St James may be affected.
The BWA has made adjustments at the Belle Pumping Station to make up for the deficit while the desalination plant is offline and water tankers have also been dispatched. (PR/SAT)
