Residents of several districts in St. Thomas report they have been without water since yesterday and the Barbados Water Authority says efforts are underway to fix the problem.

The water outage affecting Hillaby and surrounding areas that’s now into its second day and threatening to go into a third was highlighted by several callers to VOB’s Getting Down to Brass Tacks call-in program.

The BWA’s marketing officer Yvette Harris-Griffith says the problem stems from a pump failure.
