Spring Garden flooded


Share post:

WORK IS ON to fix the burst 18-inch main at Spring Garden, St Michael.

Yesterday afternoon Barbados Water Authority (BWA) employees were on the scene pumping off water from areas near the roadside.

BWA’s rapid response and communications manager Joy-Ann Haigh explained that this accumulation of water resulted from heavy rainfall on Wednesday mixed with water from the burst main.

“We were clearing the main because we locked it off last night (Wednesday night) to repair it today (Thursday),” Haigh said.

“But to repair a main we must clear it. Hence the reason why we cannot fix mains in pouring rain.”

She did not provide a timeline for when the burst main would be fixed. (AD)
