THE MINISTER OF WATER RESOURCE MANAGEMENT, Dr David Estwick, is pleading with residents of two of the country’s most water-starved parishes to bear with him for another two weeks.
Things were supposed to get better for residents in St Joseph and St John from two weeks ago when a beaming Estwick turned the switch at the Groves Wellfields and Pumping Station to launch the St Philip Water Augmentation Project.
But instead of a steady flow of water, there has only been a trickle, and residents are far from happy with the continued conditions where they are without water for hours at a time, dating back to last Christmas.
Some have even called for Estwick to come and speak to them about when things will finally improve.
The minister still is promising things will get better sooner, rather than later. (BA)
