Nightly Shut-offs by the BWA Continue
BARBADOS WATER AUTHORITY
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) is reminding the public that the nightly shut-offs implemented on May 3rd remain in effect. This action is being taken to reduce the service disruptions being experienced by customers and businesses in St. Joseph.
The nightly shut-off exercise will directly affect residents and commercial customers in parts of St. George, St. Thomas and St. John who are serviced by the transmission mains which run between Bowmanston and Golden Ridge, as well as from Applewhaites to Golden Ridge.
These areas include:
In St. George
Locust Hall, Bournes Village, Paradise, Jericho, Market Hill, Cottage Grove Development, Cottage Retreat, Newbury, Todds, Tappy Pond and neighbouring districts.
In St. Thomas
Hopewell, Vaucluse, Content, Rock Hall, Shop Hill, Christie Village, Cane Garden Heights, Proute, Strong Hope, Applewhaites and surrounding areas.
In St. John
Wilson Hill, Sherbourne, Claybury, Cherry Grove, Pool, Four Roads, Lemon Arbor, Gall Hill, Carters Gap, Glebe Land, Clifton Hall, Edge Cliff, Church View, Newcastle, Foster Hall and neighbouring districts.
Customers are reminded that the shut-offs continue nightly between 9:00 p.m and
4:00 a.m until further notice. This measure is expected to allow the Golden Ridge Reservoirs to recover overnight and 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)
