Water woes continue to affect Barbadians, this time in some parts of St Michael, Christ Church, St George and St Thomas.

The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) today announced low reservoir levels at its Fort George Reservoir were causing outages or low pressure in surrounding areas.

In St Michael, these include Kent, Upton, Fort George Heights, Wildey, Clapham, Highgate Gardens, Upper Collymore Rock, Flagstaff, Pine and in Christ Church St David’s, Vauxhall, Warners Park, Sargeant’s Village and surrounding districts.

There are also low levels at the Shop Hill facility which may affect customers in some St Thomas areas.

Pumping has temporarily ceased at the Applewhaites Station which has caused customers in some St George districts to suffer low pressure or outages. These may include Cottage Grove, Market Hill, Bridge Cot, St Helen’s Jericho, Bournes Village, Flat Rock, Locust Hall and surrounding areas.

The BWA apologised for the inconvenience and water tankers have been dispatched to assist customers in all of the affected areas, but there may be delays due to heavy demand. (PR/SAT)
