BWA Stations hit by power outages in the North

Earlier today, Sunday, May 5, the North was hit by power outages which in turn triggered water outages.

The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) has advised the public that it again suffered power outages at its stations at Alleynedale, Half Acre, Lamberts, Ashton Hall, Whim, Haymans, Warleigh, Lancaster, Apes Hill, Ozone, Haggatts, Carlton, Mt. Stepney and Prospect which are located in the north of the island.

In a press release, the Authority went on to state: 'The stoppages impacted some residents of St. Peter, St. James, St. Lucy and St. Thomas, as well as some districts in St. Joseph which have recently been experiencing water challenges once again.

The Authority has restarted all the stations and put them back into operation with the exception of Haymans which is still experiencing technical issues.

The BWA will continue to work to ensure that the water supply is restored to all affected customers.  However, persons are reminded that it may take some time for the water to fully recharge.

As usual, BWA crews will assist any customers suffering outages via water tanker as temporary measure.

Apologising for the disruption, the BWA is reminding clients that they can call the Authority at 434-4292 for assistance with any outage or problem being experienced. Representatives are available to take your calls every day, including Bank Holidays, between 8:30 am and 12 midnight.
