Poultry farms assessed


 Share This On:


GIS – The government is working to resolve a longstanding issue of odor emanating from the operational processes of poultry farms in Augier.

Invest Saint Lucia (ISL), in collaboration with the government ministries responsible for Health, Agriculture and Education, is working to address a stench from poultry farms that has been affecting the Augier Combined School and its environs.

The government bodies have established a joint committee in order to implement an equitable and practical solution to the issue.

The agency said that while the current circumstances do not lend to an overnight solution, it is committed to finding a final and permanent solution. In that regard, remedies, both temporary and permanent, are being pursued jointly with the requisite urgency, and due consideration is given to the valid interests and concerns of all affected parties.

Invest Saint Lucia and all relevant ministries involved are extremely regretful for the inconvenience and disruption caused to the students and staff of the Augier Combined School and ask for even more patience and forbearance, as this long-standing but difficult problem is satisfactorily settled as quickly as possible.

  1. is this not a part of Planning to divide Residential/Commercial/Farming/Industrial areas and should be involved?

  2. No it cannot since the fumes from the pits are equally as dangerous for the health of the people

  3. Can large amounts of activated charcoal be used to manage and reduce the stench from the poultry farms since this charcoal has excellent gas adsorption properties?
