St Joseph residents are being promised that come May, they will no longer have to rely on community tanks for their water needs.

The word came yesterday from parliamentary representative Attorney General Dale Marshall in Surinam, St Joseph, where the Rotaract Club of Barbados donated a 1 000-gallon tank.

He said the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) mains-laying Vineyard/Golden Ridge project was nearing completion.

“The Water Authority has been working assiduously on this project for the last eight or nine months, which will see an additional two million gallons of water per day going into the Golden Ridge Reservoir. [It] supplies all of this side of St Joseph and pumps water to the Castle Grant reservoir,” Marshall said. (TG)
