The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) has advised customers along Highway 1, from the Lazaretto to Speightstown, that low pressure or water outages are likely this morning.
This has resulted from two issues:
• The restart of pumping from the Ionics Desalination Plant was affected by technical issues which are being addressed. Personnel at the plant anticipate a return to full pumping shortly.
• BWA has received reports of a suspected burst in the area of Rectory Hill, Carlton, St James. Crews are already investigating this report.
Once pumping resumes from the Plant the system feeding these areas will improve.
“The BWA will keep its customers updated about this complication which has delayed the return of the normal water supply to these West Coast districts,” the statement said. (PR)
