(GIS) – The Government of Saint Lucia recently launched a programme aimed at improving the drainage systems in flood prone areas throughout Castries south east.
The program places special emphasis on the Bexon/Marc area.
During the program launch, constituents were able to hear directly from the Permanent Secretary in the Department of Infrastructure and the lead project consultant on the plans to minimize flooding in the area.
Minister for Economic Development, Housing, Urban Renewal, Transport and Civil Aviation, Hon. Guy Joseph, said: “I remain committed to finding solutions to the flooding problems faced by the residents of Castries South East. I am not promising that this initial project will completely end flooding within the constituency, but projects like these will go a long way in minimizing the destruction to property and life, as well as reducing the inconvenience that constituents face after heavy rainfall.”
The programme was launched on Feb. 20.
