The first step towards the transformation of the Bridgetown sewage treatment plant has been taken.
Tuesday afternoon, for the first time in about two years, Processing Unit One at the facility was back in operation.
Earlier this month Minister of Energy and Water Resources Wilfred Abrahams launched a four hundred thousand dollar emergency fix to take care of issues at the plant.
The Processing Unit carries about one million gallons of wastewater which will be treated and disposed of as effluent.
Minister Abrahams says private contractors from Jose and Jose, along with teams from the BWA, the Ministry of the Environment and the Sanitation Service Authority worked around the clock to meet the deadline.
General Manager of the BWA Keithroy Halliday in praising staff says the work on Processing Unit Two will begin shortly.
