Sewage night­mare in New Har­bour Vil­lage

Jamaica Gleaner - - OPINION & COMMENTARY -

THE EDITOR, Sir: THE RES­I­DENTS of Phase 6 in the beau­ti­ful gated com­mu­nity of New Har­bour Vil­lage 2 con­tinue to be gravely af­fected by sewage is­sues. As I type, there is an over­flow right along Is­land Cir­cle. Our chil­dren haven’t been able to go out to play in

months, as when the sewage stops flow­ing, the road is not even washed off.

The cit­i­zens’ as­so­ci­a­tion has reached out via vis­its, phone calls and emails to ev­ery pos­si­ble place: the National Wa­ter Com­mis­sion, the Ja­maica Pub­lic Ser­vice Com­pany, the St Cather­ine Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion, the coun­cil­lor, the

su­per­in­ten­dent of roads and works, to name a few. No up­date, as­sis­tance or guid­ance has been forth­com­ing.

We need some­one to get the word out. TA­NIA RICK­ETTS ta­nia.rick­etts@gmail.com
