Barbados: The team of BWA- Barbados Water Authority proceed their work to rebuild the water supply across the Barbados island.

As of 4 pm on Sunday, the production of the authority capability from its buildings is at 94 per cent. The water is slowly recovering to the customers in numerous parts of the districts. The water supply was earlier affected by outages.

The officials of BWA stated, “However, we yet have pockets in our distribution systems that are still to be fully charged, which includes some parts of – St Lucy, St Thomas, St John, St Joseph and Christ Church.”

Most of the island regions are still not able to receive a pipe-borne supply at higher elevations.

Following the statement, BWA added, “Our teams are continuing to work with the Barbados Light & Power to have the pumping stations fully restored to electrical power from the grid as 50 per cent of our facilities are still on the generators.”

It further informed that they have 20 water tankers in the field that are fully engaged in serving customers and are refilling the community tanks so that the customers/citizens can get the water supply without any interruption.

Despite this, BWA also encouraged the citizens of the island to use the water in a conservative way currently, at this time as the Authority tries to get all consumers back online.

“The network still requires time in order to replenish fully,” BWA officials cited.

The BWA organisation also provided helpline numbers for the citizens to report any service outages to our Customer Service Representative at – 434-4292, or the inhabitants can contact through WhatsApp at – 836-4655 or 836-4683.

The Barbados Water Authority: BWA further also thanked everyone for their understanding and for having patience.
