Grateful for access amid BWA work


Share post:

Access to their homes has been the biggest headache for some Cattlewash residents for the past two weeks since the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) started work in the rural St Joseph community trying to fix a ten-inch ruptured water main.

However, they are pleased that several improvements, including one-lane access, were allowed since the work on the mains began last week.

Harry Roberts, who is renting a property along the popular East Coast strip, said he was not satisfied with the public relations aspect of the project when it first began. However, he said that it had improved and that water tankers were often spotted in the area.

Another resident, philanthropist Peter Boos, said he was not as inconvenienced as others since he had water tanks. (TG)
