Millions to be invested in water resource management

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has announced that an investment of over $190 million in water resource management over the next decade will improve the standard of living in Dominica.

He made the announcement at the official commissioning of the $1.6 million Campbell Water Supply Project on Wednesday.

“This afternoon’s event represents the completion of one small project which is part of a programme for the development of our water resources to be implemented over the next decade at a cost of approximately 190 million dollars. At the end of this investment period Dominica will possess a well managed, well regulated water supply system that provides every household, business place, recreational facility and agricultural community with affordable water that meets the required quality standards,” he said.

Meantime residents of Campbell have been told to expect significant improvements in their lives as a result of the new and improved water supply in their community.

Minister responsible for Water Resource Management Reginald Austrie said the people have complained for several years about the poor water quality in their community.

“We are sure now that with this new and improved system that will be something of the past. Government has invested heavily in water on the island,” he said.

According to Austrie, Government expects to see increased productivity in the community as a result of the new water supply.

Works commenced on the project in January 2010 and completed in July 2010.

    Why do we always seem to associate politics to everything. The Government is improving water systems for the betterment of the lives of Dominicans on a whole and that is a good thing, it is also their job, that is what we are paying them for with our taxpayers money, whether you are a freedom, labour, uwp, or skerritite people, it`s their job. So long as its for the betterment of the country, i see nothing wrong with it. We must stop putting politics in everything and work together to better this beautiful island of ours.
