Upgrade at BWA Newmarket station
The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) announced in a media statement today that residents in St George, Christ Church and St Michael will be affected by an upgrade of its Newmarket station on Wednesday, May 27, between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.
The Newmarket station is being taken offline to facilitate urgent electrical upgrades being conducted in conjunction with the Barbados Light & Power Company Ltd.
The statement said this station is one of the sources into the Hanson and Fort George distribution network and customers in the parishes indicated may be affected by low pressure or water outages while the work is being done.
“Once the work is completed, the system may take some time to fully recover. Residents are therefore advised to store an adequate supply of water to assist during the time their water supply is expected to be affected. Water tankers will also service customers in the affected districts as a temporary measure,” the statement said. (BGIS)
