The shut-offs which will take place between 10 pm and 5 am daily on the specified dates are expected to impact residents of the following districts.
- Apes Hill Development
- Orange Hill Development
- Endeavour Nos. 1, 2 & 3
- Walcott’s Road
- Jackmans Alley
- Deans Town Terrace
in St. James.
- Rock Hall
in St. Thomas. As well as

This action is to allow the BWA to safely sanitize its newly constructed facility at Apes Hill prior to putting it into operation.
BWA tanker crews will make every effort to assist customers in the affected districts as a temporary measure, however, persons are advised to store water to use during these periods. Residents are cautioned that there may be some discolouration in the water immediately following the resumption of the water supply.
The BWA apologises for the inconvenience this work may cause.
