Date:

Share post:

PEOPLE IN Christ Church and St Philip should have increased water supply by next year.
Minister of Agriculture Dr David Estwick broke the soil at the Belle Pumping station this morning, where a project to lay 19 kilometres of 12- and 18-inch pipe will soon get under way.
The project, estimated at BDS$30 million, will see one main laid from the Belle Pumping Station to the JTC Ramsay Roundabout (Bussa). Another will start at the Fort George Reservoir, just behind CBC and terminate at Searles Roundabout, while the third main will run from the Brittons Reservoir to the Providence Reservoir.
Ionics Pipelines Inc., which has partnered with the Barbados Water Authority for the project, has awarded contracts for the work to three contractors. (YB)
