The Barbados Water Authority today Monday, November 6th advises residents of some St. George, St. John and St. Philip districts that it was forced to take one of its facilities in St John offline.
This action was taken to mitigate against discoloured water being pumped into the network as a result of the inclement weather experienced across the island yesterday.
Areas expected to be impacted by low pressure or water outages while the station is offline include Drax Hall, Greens, Bath Land, Carters, Cherry Grove, Cheshire, Cliff Cottage, Coach Hill, Codrington, Colleton, Colleton Gardens, Gall Hill, Glebe, Guinea Land, Haynes Hill, Henley, Lemon Arbor, Macaroni Village, Massiah Street, Moncrieff, Moores Land, Mount Pleasant Gardens, Pool Land, Rose Gate, Sargeant Street, Sherbourne, Small Hope, Society Hill, Spooners, Stewart Hill, Todd’s Tenantry, Wakefield Tenantry, Welch Village and surrounding areas.
The Authority will make every effort to assist customers in the affected areas via water tanker as a temporary measure and pumping will resume from the facility once the turbidity levels reduce.
The BWA apologises for any inconvenience caused. (ENDS)
