Continuation of Repair Work at Globe Roundabout
Repair work on the ruptured 15-inch main near the Globe Roundabout is proving particularly challenging and is not yet complete. Adjustments were made to this section of the network and water was restored to Country Road in the interim, however, BWA crews continue to work tirelessly towards completing the necessary repairs as soon as possible.
Water tankers have been dispatched to assist customers in the all of the affected districts, however there will be delays due to heavy demand.
The Barbados Water Authority sincerely apologizes for the inconvenience these issues are causing its valued customers and thanks you for your patience as it works to resolve them.
