Seaweed stench upsets residents


Share post:

SOME STOREY GAP, St Michael residents are fuming over the dumping of tonnes of Sargassum seaweed close to the area.

“You can’t treat people like this,” Winston “Jack” Hoyte said yesterday. The residents say the estimated 100 metres long by 25 metres wide stretch of dumped seaweed had resulted in a pungent smell throughout the district, particularly when the wind shifted direction.

The area is behind the National Conservation Commission’s (NCC) headquarters.

“It is a smell like rotting food. It makes you feel nauseous at times especially when the wind blows towards us,” said a female resident who gave her name as Adaiah. (SP)
