Residents along the area of Highway 1, Black Rock St. Michael, arose from their slumber on Monday morning to various water outages being experienced in and around the area. This service disruption was called by the neighbouring Ionics Desalination Plant, as it conducted its annual scheduled maintenance procedures which kicked off late Sunday evening.

Upon visiting the area during the early hours of Monday, workers from the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) could be seen on the site of the plant carrying out work which the BWA had promised would be done in order to mitigate any loss of supply caused to the service for customers.

In speaking to a female resident who resides in the area of Ashdeane Village, Black Rock, it was revealed that though the loss of water pressure was a big inconvenience for her, she was well aware of the water crisis the country was currently facing.
