The Barbados Water Authority is pleased to share the Environmental & Social Impact Assessment report for the South Coast Water Reclamation Project for critical review in a process of national consultation.
Barbados receives significant seasonal rainfall every year, yet it remains one of the most water scarce countries in the world. The limited water storage on the island is a product of topography, geology and land use. The effects of Climate Change resultingin more frequent and intense droughts and flooding, water loss due to leaks in the ageing water supply infrastructure, and saline intrusion into the potable aquifers, further exacerbates the situation.
The South Coast Sewage Treatment Plant belongs to the wastewater systems of Barbados and is located in Graeme Hall, Christ Church, Barbados. This plant was designed to treat wastewater, through a series of screens, to advanced preliminary standards.
The proposed South Coast Water Reclamation Project is a vital and sustainable water initiative aimed at transforming the existing South Coast Plant, into a futuristic Water ResourceRecovery Facility.
As part of the Town and Country development planning regulatory requirements, the Barbados Water Authority invites the public to a Virtual Town Hall Meeting on Wednesday, October 27th, 2021 at 6 p.m.
The Study and the zoom link for the Town Hall Meeting are available via the BGIS and the BWA’s websites and social media pages.
