Ionics Desalination Plant remains offline

The issues being experienced at Ionics Desalination Plant continue today and it remains offline.

As a result, production has been increased from the Belle Pumping Station to assist neighbouring distribution systems.

Barbados Water Authority said, however, that this will not make up the deficit created by the Desalination Plant being offline, so customers in the Lodge Hill to Shop Hill and the Castle Grant systems, including residents along the West Coast and in parts of St James, St Thomas, St Andrew and St Joseph will continue to experience water outages.

Additionally, today, customers at the higher elevations in the Grandview system were affected. This includes Belleville and surrounding districts in St Michael.

BWA will continue to assist all affected residents via water tanker. The BWA will continue to update the public. (PR)
