Low Reservoir Levels Impacting Sections of Barbados
The Barbados Water Authority is currently experiencing low water levels at some of its facilities. This is manifesting itself in periodic loss of pipe-borne water to some customers. The increased use of potable water at this time of the ash falls is also making this situation worse.
While the Authority understands that persons wish to wash down their yards, cars, homes etc., please be reminded that excessive use of potable water at this time is putting an unnecessary strain on the island’s water resources. Instead, please brush or sweep areas and bag the ash wherever possible for safe disposal.
The Authority’s tanker crews will continue to assist the residents of any affected districts via water tanker as an interim measure.
