The Barbados Water Authority is carrying out repairs in Highland, St. Philip

The Barbados Water Authority informs the public it is carrying out repairs to a further burst on a 12-inch main in Highland, St. Philip on Monday 20th August. This main burst Sunday afternoon along with a 16-inch main in the same parish. Both were repaired late Sunday by BWA crews who worked through the night.

The 12-inch main ruptured again sometime in the small hours of Monday and the Authority’s crews continue their repairs again. The recurrence of this problem has caused several Christ Church and some St. Philip districts to be without water since Sunday 19th August.

The Authority sincerely apologises for the inconvenience caused to these valued customers and, as is the practice once supply via BWA mains is lost, water tankers have been despatched to assist all areas on a temporary basis.

The Authority is also investigating a problem which caused some St. Andrew and St. Joseph districts to be without water. Reports of suspected burst mains in Crab Hill, St. Lucy and Foster Hall, St. Joseph have been received by the BWA and are being investigated as well. The suspected bursts appear to have affected the immediate surrounding districts only. Call 246-429-6164, PBX or 246-836-4741, DIRECT or Fax: 246-429-6193 The Authority apologises for the inconvenience.

Once again, water tankers have been despatched to assist residents in all affected areas while repair work is being conducted.
