Water NOT Running

This is a follow up on an earlier blog Water Running.

The blogmaster is pleased update the BU family that the authorities fixed the pipes at the location. On behalf of the BU household we thank the civic minded BU family member for taking the time to highlight the matter AND the relevant authorities for responding.

  • What are you thanking BWA for, it is their jobs to monitor and respond to these situations, they are not doing anyone any favors, taxpayers and consumers are paying THEM through their noses for getting and FOR MOSTLY NOT GETTING ANY WATER……

  • Come on WWoU, let’s show appreciation where and when it is due.

    Do you not say “Thank you” to your wife when she prepares a meal for you? Should a pedestrian not say “Thank you” when a motorist stops at a crossing for then to cross? Should an employer not say “Thank you” when a staff member does an outstanding job?

    Even when someone is paid to do a job, a word of appreciation, a word of kindness shows our humanity and lets them know that we respect them and their efforts, so I join with David and BU in extending sincere thanks to the BWA in taking the necessary step to save this precious commodity in this specific situation.

    So the both of u are telling yaselves that BWA did not know that water was being wasted for years and is still being wasted as you type, and not only through the destructive public but also through the many leakages and burst mains that consumers call them about and THEY IGNORE FOR MONTHS ON END. Well continue thanking them. I much prefer show up their weaknesses so they can STRENGTHEN THEM.

    It would be good, too, to know that the BWA took the opportunity to replace those broken/stolen taps with proper water saving devices which are not easily damaged or removed by unpatriotic vandals and petty low-class thieves.

    Can’t a few business persons with a vested interest in ‘beach-based’ tourism make a contribution to the NCC to help in the replacement of the existing taps to ‘better water conservation devices’ at these shower facilities?

    Who is in any way ‘targeting’ the workers?

    What we are talking about is a management decision at the Board/ministerial level. Top management ought to be proactive. The lowly workers can only ‘react’ to what they meet daily.

    Just like the low-hanging fruits of problems facing the SSA.

    The workers, given the resources they have to work with, do a job of daily miracles.

    Barbados has a serious management problem especially at the top; not a workers’ problem.

    In this case the NCC would have been responsible for fixing the taps, the BWA has overarching responsibility. To rebuild we have to be constructive in criticizing.

    A series of victories (big and small) is our path of recovery. Let us celebrate when something is done correctly, no matter how big/small it is. Let us find joy when the low hanging fruits are picked instead of being left on the tree.

    It is the lowly worker doing a good job daily who will bring us out of this mess; this is where the fix begins.

    Chris can probably explain but the BWA engineers have explained BWA equipment is configured with phases. When the power goes off there is a protocol that has to be followed.

    I don’t have the time to be drawn into another long discussion, but to say what I think /might/ be happening based solely on what you just wrote…

    Large pumps will almost always be “three-phase” (AKA “four-wire”) at ~208 to 240 volts. This is rather than the “one-phase” 115-volt service most consumers are used to.

    Working with this kind of electrical supply is generally a bit more complicated than what you’ll find in most homes or even businesses. More serious switches, and fail-over procedures.

    One thing this language strongly suggests is “humans are in the loop” when a transition to backup generator supply is needed. This would be a “sub-optimal” deployment, in my mind, but not unheard of (even “away”). And, not all that difficult to upgrade to fully autonomous operation.

    Once power is restored no one with three phase motors is going to start up until all are verified.

    For major installations there will be electrical/electronic hardware that will shut off the motors if one or more phase is there.

    My final comment on this matter summarises the reality of a standby business plan That functions. That faithful morning when the electricity and water died, I went into 3 large business places all operating like any other day. The reason was simply that their backup systems worked, where as the BWA’ s didn’t. Even went in one of their washrooms and found running water from their large storage reserve.

    Difference here being of course these companies realised years ago they were in the business of selling a commodity, whereas that has not yet dawned on those at the BWA hence the tardiness that followed.

    I cannot remember if both utilities went off together but I can’t see why that would happen.

    BWA has large reservoirs all over the island which in themselves constitute an immense Backup System, possibly millions of gallons depending on the levels of the reservoirs when the power went off.

    I guess if the valves at the reservoirs were all under computer control that might happen.

    But those valves are no pooh pooh valves.

    Maybe the SCADA system at BWA can automatically shut off the water at all of the reservoir in the event of a power failure.

    You could argue that BWA needs to hold on to what it has and allocate it according to some protocol but that seems too futuristic a concept to grasp for Barbados.

    Surely the power can fail and has failed in the past without consumers losing water!!

    Was the power outage island wide and if so for how long?

    Was there an islandwide water outage?

    Well not in Belleville which had water as usual so scratch the idea of the SCADA disconnecting the reservoirs.

    A couple of hours on the Monday and Tuesday was all the time businesses lost there for lack of electricity.

    Proximity to the Hospital perhaps?

    My area was one of the last to get power after Tomas in 2010.

    It took a week.

    Yet I can’t remember water being an issue where I live, only power.

    The battery in my laptop ensured I could use it for hours at a time before having to go somewhere with electricity to plug in and recharge while I continued to use it.

    A simple UPS kept my router going when I needed access to the internet.

    My recollection is that after Tomas the water disappeared for a day or two, or more.. I had to travel a day or so after the storm, and I remember getting on an early morning LIAT flight and never have I smelled such a musty collection of human beings. There were people on that plane who appeared to be from all continents, and they all smelled equally musty…me too. I had done a little thing in a basin of water and wondered if i was good enough to travel. I need not have worried, all passengers were in the same dirty boat, I mean plane. I got to another island which Tomas had bypassed and fortunately i was able to take a bath before going to my official business.

    So yes. The water disappeared during/after Tomas, otherwise why would a plane load of people not have taken their baths?

    In this picture I suspect that the 6 pumps shown will distribute the water pumped up from the submersible pumps below.

    So lots of pumps at Hampton and they are not small.

    There is some redundancy.

    Like

  • @John

    Is the redundancy based on the number and size of the pumps or the backup power (UPS/generator) to keep the pumps working.

    Like

  • Backup storage resides in the reservoirs at Providence, Vineyard and Rising Sun.

    I think they are the ones Hampton would supply on the Christ Church Dome.

    On the other side of the valley there would be Ellerton that probably gets from Hampton as well.

    The spread sheet in the 1978 Water Resources Study would show the distribution areas supplied.

    The backup would be there because the pumps would be running normally until the breakdown or loss of power and the reservoirs would have water.

    My guess is the BWA does not allow reservoirs to empty and all they have to do to make it so is to take them offline.

    It is called water rationing.

    No backup power generation is required, the pumps don’t need to cut in immediately after a power failure.

    There will be consumers on the forced mains to the Reservoirs who may be inconvenienced.

    If there is backup generation at Hampton (and I don’t know), it only needs to supply some of the pumps to supply the reservoirs mentioned.

    The flow from these reservoirs to consumers can be controlled to prolong the length of time the reservoir retains water and can function.

    It is also called water rationing.

    Also, I saw major civil works a year or two ago along the spine of the Christ Church dome connecting I assume Fort George to Rising Sun.

    If that is indeed the case, the BWA should be able to supply the reservoirs Hampton normally supplies and augment any deficiency occasioned by pump breakdown at Hampton.

    The point many miss is the daily water consumption varies and is lower in the wet season (now) than the dry season.

    For the moment I would guess BWA has an excess of supply over demand and has more wriggle room than if we were in the dry season.

    The aquifers would be recovering from their exertions in the dry season.

    The pumps and the excess of supply over demand would contribute to the redundancy and provide that wriggle room..

    Nothing wrong in the BWA letting the public know it is experiencing problems as it will also serve to depress the demand and increase its wriggle room.

    Like

  • A guy I know in St. John a few months ago told me of the problems he was experiencing with the water rationing after the intense dry period.

    If you recall the BWA advised of the need to ration water.

    https://barbadostoday.bb/2019/09/27/water-rations-coming/

    The objective of water rationing is to fill the reservoirs and build in redundancy to the water supply on a daily basis

  • “20/30 vision” is a vision measurement indicating a mild degree of visual acuity impairment at distance. The first number indicates the distance of “optical infinity” which is practically speaking 20 feet. The second number indicates the minimal size of letter that the person can see at that distance. A broad, but understandable way to interpret this (without getting into subtended angles and such) is: you have to get as close as 20 feet to make out something recognizable to the “normal” eye at 30 feet.
    Caveat: “20/30″ is quite ambiguous -it does not tell you if you are using the left or the right (or both) eyes. And this only really applies to distance acuity – it tells you absolutely nothing about how good near vision is. While eye doctors do indicate this with “sc” or “cc,” even this additional sign does not indicate if the corrected vision (CC) is with contact lenses or glasses. Finally, these numbers are typically measured with 100% contrast -and there is not much in the real world that is deep black against a bright white background!

  • The block of land at Codrington which is in the process of being cleared drains into Waterford Bottom and from there into the Belle Gully.

    It meets the runoff from the St. George Valley and the Hothersal Turning area under the steel bridge which supports the main that feeds reservoirs from the pumping station.

    From there the runoff flows under Tudor Bridge, passes the Globe Roundabout and out to sea via Constitution River.

    We run the risk of the same problem that befell St. Lucy a couple of weekends ago.

    Uncontrolled runoff with a high flow rate.

    The Botanical Gardens might look nice when complete but if the drainage is not understood it could create major problems downstream !!
