The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) wishes to advise residents of some St. George, Christ Church and St. Michael districts that its Newmarket station will be taken offline on Wednesday, May 27 between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., to facilitate urgent electrical upgrades being conducted by the BWA in conjunction with the Barbados Light & Power Company Ltd, (BLPC).
This station is one of the sources into the Hanson and Fort George distribution network and therefore customers in some of the following areas may be affected by low pressure or water outages while this critical work is underway.
In St. George: Turnpike, Carmichael, Constant, Dash Valley, Buttals, Buckley, Watts Village, Lower Greys, Ellerton and surrounding districts.
In Christ Church: Frere Pilgrim, Edey Village, St David’s and surrounding areas.
In St. Michael: Upton, Fort George, Sargeant’s Village, Bartlett’s Tenantry, Wildey, Clapham and surrounding districts.
Once the work is completed, the system may take some time to fully recover. Residents are therefore advised to store an adequate supply of water to assist during this time when their pipe borne supply is expected to be affected.
Water tankers will also service customers in the affected districts as a temporary measure.
The Barbados Water Authority apologizes to its valued customers for the inconvenience this necessary work on May 27th may cause.(PR)
