Solving the water problem
THE EDITOR, Sir:
The varying editorial articles and letters appearing in the news is a grim reminder of water woes of the past and still plaguing us presently and threaten to take us into our future. This is because the Government is not serious about their plans and policy for management and distribution of water available to our people.
We the people of White Horses, Botany Bay and Pamphret in St. Thomas wish to inform all Jamaica that we solved our water problems by participation in Rural Water Programme.
This was a programme introduced by the Government of Jamaica in partnership with the Inter America Development Bank.
This water project which belongs to the people of White Horses, Botany Bay and Pamphret is now serving the town of Morant Bay and surrounding areas and part of Yallahs.
The communities are now experiencing unexplained water lock-offs and low pressure, high water bills and connection fee of $15,000.00 from NWC.
Please note to participate in this programme community must fall under the poverty map as defined by P.I.O.J.
