The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) has issued an update on the work carried out at the Ionics Freshwater Desalination Plant, which unfortunately resulted in the plant being offline.

Work conducted over the past two days is now complete and pumping has restarted. However, it will take some time for the system to return to normal.

The BWA is advising customers currently suffering water outages, that they may continue to be impacted during today, Sunday, June 30.

Water tankers will continue to assist residents in the affected areas as a temporary measure. Please note that there may be delays due to heavy demand.
