Government working to bring Hampton station back online

It is government’s intention to have the pumping station at Hampton back on stream at full capacity.

Minister of Energy and Water Resources Wilfred Abrahams made this declaration on Thursday after news surfaced that the station suffered a collapse of its flooring while extensive work was being carried out there.

Minister Abrahams says to be able to correct this would ensure another four million gallons of water in the distribution network.

Minister Abraham says he is awaiting a report from the BWA regarding the mishap.

The water challenges that hundreds of Barbadian households have been facing are a direct result of the power failures the island experienced on Monday and Tuesday.

So says Minister of Energy and Water Resources Wilfred Abrahams.

He explained that the BWA is the single largest customer of the Barbados Light and Power Company and uses a staggering amount of electricity and therefore when that power is not available, major issues arise.

Minister Abrahams explained that tankers may have been slow to provide relief to many Barbadians because there is a priority list created by cabinet that has to be serviced first in time of emergency.
