The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) wishes to advise residents and businesses in St Lucy and St Peter that it will be swabbing a 10-inch main between Barrows, St Lucy, and the junction of Shermans and Colleton, St Peter, on Tuesday, October 16, between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
The swabbing will continue on Wednesday, October 17, between 9:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.
This swabbing exercise forms part of the authority’s action plan to address the ongoing problem of discoloured water that has been affecting customers in these parishes, the BWA says.
The BWA says residents and businesses located in Colleton, Checker Hall, Shermans, Half Moon Fort, Fustic Village, Six Men’s Village, Clinketts, Sutherland Hill, Bourbon and surrounding areas in St Lucy, and Colleton Gardens, Six Men’s Development and surrounding districts in St Peter may be affected by low pressure or water outages during this period.
Customers are asked to store an adequate supply of water for the duration of the scheduled work. Water tankers will also be dispatched to assist in the affected areas.
The Barbados Water Authority apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause to customers.
