BWA conducting emergency repairs at Government Hill

July 15th, 2022

The Barbados Water Authority is advising the public that crews are presently conducting emergency repairs to a burst on a large-sized main at Government Hill, St. Michael.

It says the burst has impacted the feed into two reservoirs that supply residents and businesses in several St. Michael and Christ Church districts.

As a result, customers located along Highway 7 between Carters Gap in Christ Church and Jemmotts Lane in St. Michael as well as those in Belleville, Lower Collymore Rock, Dunlow Lane, Martindale’s Road, Nelson Street, Constitution Road, St. Michael’s Row, Roebuck Street and surrounding areas in St. Michael may be affected by low pressure or water outages.

The BWA has strongly recommended that customers in these districts who still have a pipe-borne supply, store water to assist during the period of work.

Water tankers will be dispatched to assist customers in affected areas as a temporary measure, but the authority warns there may be delays due to heavy demand.

The BWA has thanked the public for its cooperation and understanding.
