The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) is pleased to share the Environmental & Social Impact Assessment Report and Feasibility 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 aging water supply infrastructure, and saline intrusion into the potable aquifers, further exacerbate 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 and related documents are available for viewing via the links below:
