BWA backlash


Share post:

RESIDENTS in a number of St James districts yesterday slammed the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) for what they said was its failure to alert them of a water outage that left many of them scrambling to prepare their Sunday meals.

According to a media release from the BWA on Friday, the Ionics Freshwater Desalination Plant at Spring Garden, St Michael, was temporarily offline to facilitate upgrades, but due to technical difficulties, pumping was halted until further notice. Outages were experienced in St Michael, St Thomas and St James areas.

Yesterday the BWA sent out an update stating work at the plant had been completed and pumping had restarted, but it would take some time for the system to return to normal.(SB)
