On Wednesday, May 20, 2015, the Rotary Club of Dominica will officially hand over the newly renovated Mero Washroom facility to the Mero Enhancement Committee, MEC represented by Josephine Dublin-Prince, Chairperson of the Committee.

The over $82 thousand EC dollar facility which was constructed in 2010 and operated as part of a Rotary International Project was a collaborative effort between the Rotary Club of Dominica, the Rotary Club of Conyers and the Chattanooga Breakfast Club.

The objective of this project was to reduce the pollution of the beach and the marine environment as well as to work with the community in managing waste water. Mero Beach is one of the more popular beaches in Dominica and the home to healthy coral communities and other marine life. It is also a popular beach for cruise visitors and serves as a source of economic activity for the community.

This free, open-to-the-public facility with toilets, showers and laundry tubs serves hundreds of villagers on a daily basis and thousands of visitors.

Following the official handing over, the sanitation facility is expected to be managed by the Mero Enhancement Committee for the benefit of the entire community.

As this facility continues to impact the lives of the residents within the Mero Community, it is the hope of the Rotary Club of Dominica that this model of a wastewater treatment system could be used throughout the country and the Rotary Club of Dominica intends to communicate the effectiveness of this treatment system to other villages and other clubs in their District.

The facility was recently renovated at an additional cost of EC$10,295.98.

    good job, but hopefully the dirtest beach in Dominica (Mero, on the Castaways side gets cleaned or is kept clean too), is not only the touristy side or the side closest to the village that should be kept clean eh
