BWA ploughing Tens of Millions into St John, looking to complete in 2021
The Barbados Water Authority is moving forward with the project to augment the water supply into the water starved sections of St. Andrew, St. Thomas, St. John and St. Joseph. In order to achieve this, infrastructural upgrades are required to move the water from the Vineyard Reservoir in St. Philip to Golden Ridge in St. George via Mount Pleasant in St. John.
