BARBADOS WATER AUTHORITY
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
The Barbados Water Authority wishes to inform the public that work continues at its Newmarket Pumping Station today Saturday, August 31st. Once successfully completed, this work will allow the supply to the Fort George Reservoir and the districts it feeds to return to full capacity.

These areas may include:
