BWA work­ing on sewage plant fix

Daily Nation (Barbados) - - News -

A GLITCH has been blamed for the stench em­a­nat­ing from the Bridgetown Sewage Treat­ment Plant.

It was on Fri­day that peo­ple work­ing in Fontabelle, St

Michael, started com­plain­ing of a nox­ious stench from the Lakes Folly plant.

And res­i­dents were also up in arms about the smell.

Yes­ter­day, the Bar­ba­dos Wa­ter Au­thor­ity (BWA) is­sued a state­ment apol­o­gis­ing to those work­ing and liv­ing in the ar­eas sur­round­ing the plant.

The state­ment, posted on its so­cial me­dia page, said the plant had ex­pe­ri­enced a glitch with one of the blow­ers late Satur­day which re­sulted in “mal­odours be­ing ex­pe­ri­enced in the im­me­di­ate vicin­ity of the plant”.

“The au­thor­ity has made some ad­just­ments to its op­er­a­tions at the plant and this has worked to re­duce the odours and get the sit­u­a­tion un­der con­trol.

“The BWA will con­tinue to mon­i­tor the sit­u­a­tion while it works to­wards get­ting an­other blower op­er­a­tional within the next 48 hours,” it added. (HLE/PR)
