Residents in parts of St. Joseph, St. John and St. Andrew who are serviced by the Barbados Water Authority’s (BWA) community tanks during water outages are advised that they have been deactivated for sanitisation purposes.
This entails a 24-hour chlorination process of the tanks and forms part of the Authority’s mitigation plan for prolonged water outages that may occur this hurricane season. During this period, the public is urged not to use the community tanks in these parishes.
The tanks will be reactivated after the chlorination process has been completed and re-filled with potable water by the BWA’s Rapid Response Unit. An update will be issued to the public on their availability for usage.
