Minister of Transport, Works and Water Resources Ian Gooding-Edghill says Government is well on its way to bringing relief to residents who have been experiencing poor water service for several months.

“We have a duty to ensure that this constituency and all other parts of Barbados benefit from a consistent supply of water,” he told a Barbados Labour Party’s Christ Church East meeting held at the constituency office in Hopewell Road on Sunday night.

“We are establishing a containerised desalination plant at Colleton, St Lucy . . . . We are also going to establish another containerised desalination plant at the Hope Plantation in St Lucy . . . . We plan to construct two tanks at Apes Hill, St James, with an additional capacity of 1.3 gallons of water going down there.

“The Government intends to construct an additional 600 000 gallon tank at Walkers in St Andrew and we are also going to improve the existing tank at Castle Grant, St Joseph, and we are going to build a new 1.3 million gallon tank there.” (SB)
