Dr David Estwick has said there will be desalination plants in the north and south of the island so that residents won’t suffer the indignity of not having water. 

Estwick told Thursday night’s crowd at Bay Street, St Michael during the Democratic Labour Party candidates launch that he was delivering a report

The Minister of Agriculture and Water Resource Management and the candidate for St Philip West started with the Barbados Water Authority, an agency at the centre of massive criticism over the South Coast sewage crisis and some time ago because of water outages. 

He said when he took up the portfolio there was nothing being done about the water scarcity in Barbados. 

Estwick said a desalination plant in St Lucy was constructed and the output at the desalination plant on Spring Garden was increased.  (AC)
