The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) is pleased to share the Environmental & Social Impact Assessment report for the South Coast Water Reclamation Project for critical review in a process of national consultation.

Barbados receives significant seasonal rainfall every year, yet it remains one of the most water-scarce countries in the world. The effects of Climate Change resulting in more frequent and intense droughts and flooding, water loss due to leaks in the ageing water supply infrastructure, and saline intrusion into the potable aquifers, further exacerbates the situation.

The South Coast Water Reclamation Project is a vital and sustainable water initiative aimed at transforming the existing South Coast Sewage Treatment Plant, into a futuristic Water Resource Recovery Facility.


As part of the Town and Country Development Planning Regulatory requirements, the Barbados Water Authority invites the public to view and provide comments on the Environmental Impact Study for the project. The Study is available for viewing via the BGIS and the BWA’s websites and social media pages.


The BWA will also host a virtual Town Hall Meeting on the South Coast Water Reclamation Project on Wednesday, 27th October 2021 at 6 p.m.


Please be advised that approximately 250 persons can be accommodated at the meeting via the following zoom link:
