The Barbados Water Authority wishes to update the public that its Pumping Stations at Ashton Hall and Haymans are back online.
Pumping from the facility at Haymans resumed on Friday night, while the Ashton Hall Station was put back online this afternoon Saturday.
Normal water supply would have been restored to customers in several of the northern areas recently impacted by low water pressure or outages. However, it will take some time for the supply to the affected St Peter districts of Mount Brevitor, Rose Hill, Mile and a Quarter, Maynards, Benn Hill, Boscobelle, Gays, Indian Ground, French Village and the immediate surrounding areas to return to normal.
The Authority is also this afternoon, Saturday carrying out repairs to a burst on a 16-inch main near the Sandy Lane Golf Course in St James.
In order to facilitate these repairs, pumping from the Ionics Desalination Plant has been stopped. Customers along the West Coast and those at the higher elevations of St James and St Thomas are advised to store some water to assist them while the repair is being conducted as they may be affected by low pressure or water outages later this evening and into tonight.
Adjustments have been made to the distribution network to minimise the number of affected districts. Water tankers will continue to assist residents of all affected areas as a temporary measure.
The Barbados Water Authority apologizes for any inconvenience these service disruptions have caused our valued customers.
