The Barbados Water Authority advises the public that it will be connecting a recently relocated 18” main near its facility at St. Stephen’s, Black Rock in St. Michael to its existing distribution network.

In an effort to complete this work as soon as possible, the BWA will make the connection between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm on Friday, July 23rd.

A number of stations will be affected and may go offline to facilitate the connection. Customers in the following parishes or areas may be impacted by water outages during the stated period.

In St. James:

Cave Hill Crescent, Durants Village, Halls Village, Oxnards, Haynesville, Husbands Development, Husbands Gardens, Husbands Heights, Ricks Land, Thorpes, Wanstead, West Terrace, Appleby, Derricks, Fitts Village, Holetown, Jamestown Park, Mount Standfast, Paynes Bay, Porters, Prospect, Sunset Crest, Trents, Hoytes Village, Clermont, Clearview Heights, Crystal Heights, Halcyon Heights, Husbands, Prior Park and surrounding districts.
