The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) will be conducting urgent work at its Belle Pumping Station in St Michael, from April 12 to 14.
Jamal Brathwaite, lead Engineer on the project said it was part of the BWA’s ongoing maintenance programme and will allow crews to enter the well and conduct the repairs safely.
The daily shutdowns will begin on April 12 and run until Thursday April 14, with the station being offline from 8 a.m. to noon and again between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. each day.
In addition to the work at the Belle, the Authority’s crews will use this opportunity to complete key connections at the newly constructed Grandview Reservoir at Government Hill, St Michael.
“These connections will allow the organisation to continue its efforts to increase redundancy in the water supply across the island,” Brathwaite said.
The work will impact customers in St Michael and Christ Church districts stretching from Codrington junction in St Michael to Carter’s Gap in Christ Church including all of Bridgetown. (PR/SAT)
