New leak detector in the pipeline


Share post:

THE USE OF A NEW LEAK DETECTION DEVICE that can send text messages directly to the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) could increase the chances of undisrupted service to customers, starting with those in St Lucy.

Project manager for the newly formed Non-Revenue Water Department, Charles Leslie, said the utility company has “intensified” its efforts to address the island’s water woes, some of which were linked to leakages in older pipes within the water distribution system.

In an interview with the SUNDAY SUN on Friday, Leslie explained that for the first time Barbados could be using data loggers with a “telemetry” system (an automated communications process) to allow for “real time monitoring” of leaks.
