Hundreds of Barbados Water Authority customers across three parishes are being told to brace for outages for just over a week.

This as the BWA has commenced nightly shut-offs, starting Thursday, that will continue until February 2nd.

The water is expected off from 10:00 p.m. to five in the morning.

Communities in St. James, St. Thomas and St. Andrew will be affected as the BWA finalises work on a new tank at Apes Hill.

BWA Director of Engineering, Charles Leslie gave CBC News an update.

Affected residents in St. James include those living in Apes Hill Development, Orange Hill Development, Endeavour, Walcott’s Road, Jackmans Alley and Deanstown Terrace.

In St. Thomas, Plumtree and Rock Hall will be without water at night during the period as well, along with Apes Hill and Turners Hall in St. Andrew.

Customers in those areas are being asked to store water and tankers will be dispatched to service the affected districts.

The BWA apologises for the inconvenience.
