As the island prepares for a deterioration in weather associated with the system currently being monitored by the Barbados Meteorological Services, the Barbados Water Authority reminds customers who are impacted periodically by discoloured water issues that it is important to store water.

Remember that the recommended amount is five (5) gallons per person per day for at least five (5) days.  Water should be stored in clean, covered containers.

In addition to storing water, it is always helpful to have disinfecting wipes and hand sanitizer accessible to help keep yourself and your surroundings sanitary.

Should you need to contact the BWA to report an urgent water related issue after the storm passes and the All Clear has been given, please call 434-4292.

The Authority urges all to be prepared and stay safe.
