Crews of the Wastewater Division (WWD) of the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) are currently on the scene of overflows on the South coast of the Island; notably Hastings, Worthing and Rendezvous in Christ Church.

According to a press release issued by the BWA, these overflows are due to a breach in the network system and a block in the sewage lines.

Following a strategy meeting at the South Coast Sewage Treatment Plant (SCSTP) earlier this week with technical teams from the Authority and the WWD, specialised materials have been ordered to address the ongoing challenges in the network and in the lines.

In the interim the WWD's crews are working assiduously to manage the overflows until the breach and blockage can be rectified.
