BWA Update – Repair Work at Hampton Partially Completed
BARBADOS WATER AUTHORITY
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) wishes to advise the public that its crews were able to complete repair work on the damaged well floor platform at the Hampton Pumping Station late last night Monday, November 25th and pumping resumed from that facility soon thereafter, however, still at a reduced capacity.
Please note that while the station is pumping, customers in the St. Philip and Christ Church areas will continue to experience intermittent supply or outages for a little while longer. This is because of the reduction in the amount of water being put into the section of the network that supplies these areas.
Other Emergency Work
BWA personnel are also today presently carrying out emergency electrical work at the Waterford Station over which may result in low pressures to some St. Thomas and St. James areas. However, the station will only be offline for a 2-hour period ending mid-afternoon to allow for the completion of this work.
Other Stations Up and Running
The remaining stations in the Authority’s distribution network are all working and pumping water into the system. However, there may be districts at the higher elevations in St. Andrew and St. Joseph still suffering water outages as a result of low levels at the re-pumping facility sending water into their areas.
The Authority wishes to apologise to its valued customers for the continued inconvenience the continuing outages have caused.
The BWA will continue to assist all affected persons via water tanker as a temporary measure.
