THE BARBADOS WATER AUTHORITY (BWA) is dealing with an increase of ruptured mains along the West Coast, but it’s par for the course right now, says engineering manager Charles Marville.
Just yesterday, the BWA was forced to send a team to deal with two ruptures just outside Holetown, St James, which affected water supply in parts of that parish for most of the day.
“It’s a nuisance more than a major problem,” Marville told the DAILY NATION. “At this time we are pushing water from south to north instead of north to south so we were forced to raise the water pressure slightly in that direction, which led to the ruptures.”
