Providenciales, 14 Oct 2014 – Provo may never experience the flooding as had been seen in the deluge of TS Cristobal again.
We have learned that Government has spent $162 thousand dollars on wells & drains and new wells & drains in the aftermath of that retreating rainy system which grid locked the nation for over a week. Seventeen drains have been re-drilled, while 14 new drainage wells have been dug – all on the island of Providenciales. New wells will mean more run off points for any prolonged rains, the flooding so severe that it trapped people and created health risks.
There are now five new wells in Leeward; three in Long Bay; two in Blue Hills and one each for Juba Sound, Caicos Lodge and Airport Road. The re-drilled wells included the five in Leeward, four in Five Cays, four in The Bight, two in Kew Town and one each for Juba Sound and Long Bay.
