UPDATE: BWA completes repairs to Belle Gully burst main
The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) has completed repairs to the burst nine-inch main in Belle Gully, St Michael.
BWA has reminded customers in the affected areas in St Michael and Christ Church that “even though the repairs are complete, it will take some time for the water pressure within the distribution network to return to normal”.
“The Authority’s personnel will also be monitoring this particular main (an older main) closely should another rupture occur,” according to a statement from the BWA.
Water tankers will continue to assist residents in the affected areas.
BWA also said customers in parts of St Michael, St James and St Thomas who are supplied by the Shop Hill, St Thomas section of the network may experience low water pressure or outages. This is a result of BWA having been forced to stop pumping from its station at Lodge Hill, St Michael due to low reservoir levels. (PR)
