Customers cautioned to expect disruptions in water supply this week

Two Barbados Water Authority (BWA) stations will be offline for two days this week.

Residents in the North are being warned that disruptions will occur on Tuesday May 12 and Wednesday May 13. The stations at Alleynedale and Haymans will be offline between the hours of 9 am and 1 pm both days.

The BWA said that this will be done to facilitate urgent electrical upgrades being conducted by the BWA in conjunction with the Barbados Light & Power Company Limited.

What should customers do?

Residents are therefore advised to store an adequate supply of water to assist during this time when their pipe borne supply is expected to be affected. Water tankers will also service customers in the affected districts as a temporary measure.
