New water meters coming


Share post:

“SMART” WATER METERS are coming to Barbadian households this year, and retired Barbados Water Authority (BWA) General Manager Denis Yearwood also wants  to see “a new  governance model”  for the public corporation.
Acting general manager Dr John Mwansa, who replaces Yearwood, said on Saturday that Barbadian households would this year have their current meters replaced with state-of-the-art devices that can alert the householder to problems with pipes in the home.
The occasion was  a farewell function  for Yearwood at Hilton Barbados where the outgoing general manager of 21 years said that  an expectation of Barbadians – like other Caribbean people – is a new form of control of this vital service.
“Careful analysis,  in my view, leads one  to conclude that we  in Barbados must reach for a new governance model of the BWA,  beyond that of a statutory corporation,” he said to some 300 staff  and invitees.
