BWA Facilities Gradually Coming Back Online
The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) wishes to update customers that its pumping stations are systematically being put back on line in conjunction with the restoration of power across the island.
Engineer (Ag.) in charge of Operations and Maintenance at the BWA has indicated that “at this stage (late Monday evening) approximately sixty (60) percent of the stations are back in operation. However, those not in operation at present are dependent on reservoir levels returning to a positive state.”
Marketing Officer, Yvette Harris-Griffith further explained that “for some districts this process may not result in water in the taps until Tuesday, as water levels have to build up in the distribution network.”
“All of the Authority’s water tankers have been deployed to assist customers in the interim and remain in the field for extended hours” Mrs Harris-Griffith added. “We ask our customers to be patient as the demand for the tanker service is extremely high.”
The BWA thanks its valued customers for their patience during this period of inconvenience.
