Low pressure, water outages in parts of St Joseph and St John
Residents of St Joseph and St John are experiencing water shortages as the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) grapples with low production from the Bowmanston and Golden Ridge pumping stations.
In a release today, the BWA said this will lead to low pressure or intermittent outages, but water tankers will be dispatched.
The affected areas include Wilson Hill, Sherbourne and surrounding areas which are serviced by Bowmanston, as well as Bissex, Lower Parks, Upper Parks, Coconut Grove, Dark Hole, Fruitful Hill, Chimborazo, Horse Hill, Suriname, Lammings, Sugar Hill, Mellow’s Hill, Spa Hill, Melvin’s Hill and surrounding areas in St Joseph and White Hill in St Andrew, which are on the Golden Ridge to Castle Grant line.
Residents will also get water via the community tanks, the release added.
