POLL: Wastewater Division on top of Bridgetown Sewage Plant odor issue

Efforts by the Wastewater Division (WWD) of the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) to control a strong odour from the Bridgetown Sewage Treatment Plant on Monday, February 12 has yielded results.

After identifying the substance which was off-loaded at the plant on Saturday, February 10 and which contributed to the noxious scent, WWD operators have started replenishing bacteria integral to the treatment process. This has been able to contain the odour considerably.

Have you noticed an improvement in the smell around the Bridgetown Sewage Plant between last Saturday and today, February 17?

It smells the same

The BWA has strengthened its policies monitoring all waste coming into the plant and has reminded haulers to observe established regulations for dumping at the plant.
