There will be ramifications for businesses and homeowners who continue to dump grease and oils into the South Coast Sewage Treatment Plant.
The dumping of fats, oils and grease into the system was so bad, said the Barbados Water Authority’s (BWA) manager of its Waste Water Recovery Programme, Patricia Inniss, that the authority would be sending letters to offending persons.
She was speaking to the DAILY NATION in the wake of issues which resurfaced after Saturday’s heavy rainfall. There were reports of sewage seeping from under manhole covers on Hastings Main Road and Worthing, Christ Church, as well.
There are about 120 business and 40 restaurants in the tourist belt of Peronne Village, Worthing, Worthing View, Rendezvous, Hastings and St Lawrence Gap, and the BWA has been engaging them in how they could reduce the amount of oils, fats and grease entering the system. (HLE)
