THE SARGASSUM seaweed is back but the National Conservation Commission (NCC) says it is on the case.

General manager Keith Neblett said yesterday they had removed more than 70 truckloads of the seaweed from Skeete’s Bay in St Philip, and planned to remove more of it from River Bay, St Lucy, next week.

In the meantime, he said teams would be working along the South Coast.

As for the East Coast, Neblett told the DAILY NATION there was “quite a bit” there as well, but that side of the island was less populated, so they would only be working in select locations.

“We will concentrate more on the public areas on the East Coast and those areas not in the public way will be left to occur naturally.”

He added the NCC would welcome citizens willing to volunteer their services in removing any of the seaweed. (CA)
