Dumping stains river project


Share post:

Illegal?dumping of garbage and theft of property are becoming huge problems for contractors of Phase 2 of the Constitution River improvement project.
And as a result, Ian Nicholls, principal engineer and director of DLN Consultants Inc., the company overseeing the Barbados Tourism Investment (BTI) Inc. project, is calling on perpetrators to stop the acts.
Giving an update on the work being carried out by C.O. Williams Construction Limited yesterday, Nicholls complained that the garbage being thrown into the river contributed to a substantial amount collected by boat on a weekly basis.
“While some of this stuff comes from upstream from the greater Bridgetown area there is still a significant amount of food containers and other debris being dumped into the channel every day and this eventually ends up in Carlisle Bay.
“It is an issue which I think we need to sensitize everyone to. This is a huge problem and something which has to be dealt with on a weekly basis by the contractor,” he said. (AH)
