Water ease for all

Squatters and other householders in Barbados who do not own the land on which they live, can now install running water without hindrance from the landlord.

Minister of Water Resources Wilfred Abrahams yesterday informed the House of Assembly during the 2020 Estimates Debate of a new policy implemented by his ministry in collaboration with the Barbados Water Authority (BWA).

 It permits tenants of land to apply directly to the BWA to get a water supply connected for their use.

Explaining the process, he said the householder would be required to go to the BWA and make the application. The BWA would inspect the property and “once you are in an area where development is allowed, you fill out the form; you sign the indemnity; pay your deposit; you pay your security deposit and we connect you”.
