Dis­coloured wa­ter lines will be flushed

Daily Nation (Barbados) - - Front Page -

THE RES­I­DENTS of Up­per Cas­tle and Collins, Bosco­bel, St Peter, who had to cope with dis­coloured wa­ter flow­ing through their taps on Christ­mas Day, have been as­sured by the Bar­ba­dos Wa­ter Au­thor­ity (BWA) that the is­sue would be soon rec­ti­fied.

BWA’S rapid re­sponse and com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager Joy Ann Haigh told the DAILY NA­TION the mat­ter would be in­ves­ti­gated yes­ter­day and that ar­range­ments would be made for the lines to be flushed.

On Christ­mas Day, res­i­dents com­plained about the qual­ity of potable wa­ter which they said looked like whiskey, gin­ger ale, orange juice or mauby.

Mau­reen Hur­ley, of Collins, said she had ab­dom­i­nal pains de­spite boil­ing it, while oth­ers said it put a damper on the hol­i­day sea­son. Last year, the com­mu­ni­ties were also hard-hit by wa­ter short­ages. ( SB)
