Water works ahead of schedule
Residents of St John, St Joseph and St Andrew may get water consistently this Christmas should work on the Vineyard Water Augmentation project continue at its current pace.
This is according to Minister of Transport, Works and Water Resources Ian Gooding-Edghill, who said work on the project, upon which several rural communities are pegging their hopes for relief from prolonged water woes, was progressing at a rate that could see it finish ahead of the January 2021 completion target.
Gooding-Edghill, along with high-ranking officials of the Barbados Water Authority (BWA), took the media on a tour of the project yesterday to get a first-hand look at the progress made in the last month.
He disclosed that all of the pipe work would be completed by mid-November while the installation of the two tanks would begin at the end of this month. (CLM)
