The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) wishes to advise the public that the following stations are back online using standby generators: Hampton, New Market, Bowmanston and Alleynedale.
The facilities at the Belle, St. Stephens and Half Acre are also back online thanks to electricity from the Barbados Light & Power Company (BLPC).
Customers are reminded that water pressure will be restored gradually to the areas fed from these locations as the distribution network recovers.
Work is in progress at Lodge Hill, Waterford, Whim, Haymans, Sweet Vale and the Ionics Desalination Plant with a view to getting them online today.
However, this is largely dependent on the restoration of a stable electrical supply to these stations.
The Authority continues to thank its valued customers, who are currently still suffering water outages, for their patience during this period of inconvenience.
Customers who have tap-borne water are reminded to collect and store some in the event that the outages continue or recur. We are still within the Hurricane Season and persons should collect five gallons per person, per household per day.
BWA’s water tanker crews which began assisting customers at 5:oo a.m. will continue to work to meet the demand throughout the day and into tonight.
Please bear with the Barbados Water Authority as it seeks to attend to the essential services and most vulnerable first.
