Customers owing BWA told to pay up

Barbadians who owe the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) money are being urged to contact the state agency so that arrangements can be made to pay their arrears.

Failing this, some people may eventually find themselves “cut off” from the resource, Minister of Transport, Works and Water Resources Santia Bradshaw warned yesterday.

The Deputy Prime Minister was speaking in the House of Assembly as she introduced the Water Reuse Bill, 2023, which is to “provide for the capture, collection, treatment and reuse of wastewater to be used for various purposes”.

Last September, the BWA said it was owed about $26 million by customers. Delivering the Financial Statement and Budgetary Proposals in March, Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Mia Amor Mottley announced that the principal amount owed to the BWA would be reduced by 25 per cent once indebted customers paid what was due between March 15 and September 15.
