In light of the prevailing conditions being experienced across the island, the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) wishes to advise that its crews will only be addressing absolute emergencies between today Saturday, April 10th and 12 noon tomorrow Sunday, April 11th.
This action is being taken out of an abundance of caution to protect the Authority’s staff in the field and its equipment.
The Barbados Water Authority also informs that it has no plans to shut off the water supply across the island. The Authority operates a water distribution network which is a closed system. This means that our infrastructure is not exposed or vulnerable to any ash fall being experienced.
