Barbados Water Authority (BWA) said today that emergency repairs at its Belle Pumping Station to replace a major pump and a damaged electrical cable in the well have been completed.

The work was carried out over the past two nights.

A media release said while the station has been stabilised, additional work is scheduled for Tuesday, October 6, when the station will be shut down from 4:30 p.m. Work is expected to be completed by midnight.

BWA said customers in St Michael, Christ Church, the West Coast and the North may suffer low pressure or water outages.

Residents in the affected areas are asked to store five gallons of water per person, per day to assist while the work is being carried out. (PR)
