UPDATE: BWA repairs at Belle Pumping Station
The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) said that while work continues at the Belle Pumping station today, the team sustained normal water production overnight and will continue to do so today.
“This effort has seen a gradual return to normal level in reservoirs and distribution systems that were affected by the ongoing maintenance work at the Belle Pumping Station. It is therefore anticipated that most customers should see an improvement in their water supply today April 14, 2022,” BWA said in a media release today.
The statement also said there was a scheduled two-hour shutdown of the station today to facilitate important work on the well heads, the removal of additional beams and to put the remaining pumps into full operation.
BWA said this shutdown should not affect customers since the systems have recharged, however, customers should continue to conserve water during the remainder of today.
The tanker service team remains fully deployed and will continue to assist residents and businesses in the affected districts, however, there will be delays due to heavy demand. The Authority will continue to provide updates. (PR/KG)
