The Ionics Desalination Plant at Spring Garden, St Michael is currently offline as a result of electrical power issues.
Barbados Water Authority (BWA) said today that customers being supplied by the Shop Hill, West Coast and Castle Grant distribution systems are expected to be affected by water outages during the course of the day.
BWA said this situation may continue until full production from the Desalination Plant can be restored.
While the outages may not affect customers immediately, residents along the West Coast and in parts of St James, St Thomas, St Andrew and St Joseph are advised to store water.
BWA said every effort will be made to help residents in these districts via tanker while the situation is ongoing. (PR)
