BWA Begins Nightly Shut-offs to Help St. Joseph Areas Plagued by Outages
BARBADOS WATER AUTHORITY
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) informs customers in St. Joseph that as a result of the continued water outages affecting the parish, it will be implementing nightly shut-offs on the transmission mains between Bowmanston and Golden Ridge, as well as from Applewhaites to Golden Ridge in order to effect the recharge of the Golden Ridge Reservoirs.
Customers are advised that the shut-offs will run nightly from 9:00 p.m until 4:00 a.m beginning tonight Friday, May 3rd until further notice. It is anticipated that this intermediate measure will allow the Golden Ridge Reservoirs to recover overnight to allow for longer hours of pumping to Castle Grant during the daytime.
The Authority apologises for the inconvenience and thanks you for your cooperation. (ENDS)
