The Barbados Water Authority wishes to advise residents and businesses in parts of St Andrew, St George, St James, St John, St Joseph, St Michael and St Thomas that they may experience low pressure and outage as a result of low levels at the Shop Hill, Golden Ridge and Castle Grant reservoirs.

Areas that may be affected by the Shop Hill reservoir include Hothersal Turning, Jackman’s, Upper Carlton, Barkers Woods and surrounding districts.

Areas that may be affected by the Golden Ridge reservoir include Groves, Market Hill, Locust Hall, Four roads, Lemon Arbour, Sherbourne, and surrounding districts.

In addition, reservoir levels remain low at the Bowmanston Pumping Station and investigations are ongoing.

The Barbados Water Authority apologises for the inconvenience to its valued customers.  (PR)
