Hampton station pumping again

Water Resources Minister Wilfred Abrahams says the Barbados Water Authority and Government are doing all in their power to ensure there won’t be a repeat of the recent water outages at the Hampton Pumping station.

During a press conference Thursday morning at his ministry’s Country Road Offices, the minister said the service disruptions were caused by a series of unprecedented events at that site, in the wake of last week’s two day blackout.

While noting that St Philip pumping station is operational, Mr Abrahams said it is not at full capacity.  However, he explains more work is scheduled for the site and more equipment has been ordered.
