BWA conducts emergency repairs
The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) is conducting emergency repair work on a 16-inch main at Cemetery Lane, Sandy Lane, St James today.
Pumping from the Ionics Desalination Plant and the Stations at Trents and Apes Hill has been stopped temporarily to allow the repair work on this large main to be completed.
BWA said this has caused the facility at Lancaster to suffer low levels and it is functioning at a reduced capacity.
Customers in St Michael and St James and districts connected to the abovementioned stations will experience low water pressure or outages while this emergency work is being conducted.
“The Authority will make every effort to assist residents in the affected districts via tanker in the interim. Customers will be kept updated on the progress of the work. Personnel are also today addressing reports of suspected bursts on small mains in the areas of Parish Land, Goodland Gardens and Thompson Gap, Lodge Road in Christ Church,” according to a statement.
The BWA apologises for the inconvenience these service disruptions have caused. (PR)
