The number one economic generator for Barbados is tourism. Concerns have been raised due to the impact to public health and tourism resulting from the deterioration of bathing beach water quality on West Coast beaches. These concerns in conjunction with eutrophication of near shore waters and destruction of coral reefs have caused the Government to consider building the West Coast sewerage system. BWA (Barbados Water Authority) is determining the most appropriate methodology to fund and implement strategies presented in the West Coast Sewerage Master Plan based on scientific reasoning, risk management, and affordability criteria to reduce public health risks due to ongoing wastewater pollution practices.
