Desalination Plant to Conduct Annual Scheduled Maintenance
BARBADOS WATER AUTHORITY
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
The Ionics Desalination Plant informs the public that it will be conducting routine annual scheduled maintenance activities between 10:00 p.m on Sunday, November 3 and 8:00 p.m on Monday, November 4, 2019.
As a result, the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) wishes to advise customers along Highway 1 between Black Rock in St. Michael and Holetown in St. James as well as those resident along Highway 2A between Cave Hill and Bennetts that they may be affected by water outages or low pressure while the work is ongoing.
The BWA will be making adjustments to its distribution network to supplement the deficit while the Desalination Plant is offline and will be carrying out maintenance at that location as well as at the Trents Pumping Station during the shutdown period.
Customers are advised to store water to assist, however, the Authority’s water tankers will also service persons within the affected districts as a temporary measure.
The BWA apologises for the inconvenience. (ENDS)
