The general manager of the Barbados Water Authority has been explaining how the South Coast Sewage System held up during Tropical Storm Kirk last week.

That system dumped about 10 inches of rain on the island between Thursday night and Friday morning.

Keithroy Halliday says they've been working consistently to try to clear the sanitary lines of the fats, oils, and grease that had been causing the blockages in the system.

According to him, some headway was made in that area.

The authority also plans to re-look at staff management during disasters or other major events.

Mr Halliday says that's one of the lessons learnt from last week's experience.
