The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) has advised residents and businesses in parts of St. Lucy and St. Peter, who have been impacted by discoloured water, that its team commenced a swabbing programme on Wednesday, October 17, which forms part of the Authority’s action plan to address this ongoing problem.
The first phase of the programme entailed the insertion of chlorine and a swab sponge into the 10-inch water main between Barrows, St. Lucy and the junction of Shermans and Colleton, St. Peter.
The programme will enter phase two within the next few weeks and customers are encouraged to follow the progress via the BWA’s social media channels.
Additionally, discoloured water may still appear intermittently until all of the phases have been completed. Should this occur, water tanker assistance can be requested by contacting the Customer Care Hotline at 434-4292.
The BWA sincerely apologises for any inconvenience caused.
