RESIDENTS OF ST MATTHIAS Housing Estate, Christ Church are frustrated as a result of two overflowing wells in the area.

Netta Williams, who lives obliquely opposite one of the wells, said she was annoyed having spoken to several health officials, only to be told “the truck ain’t working”. 

The problem, she said, had persisted and got worse over the last two months. 

“Since last December out here like this. Many mornings we wake up and out here like a swimming pool. Just the other morning we had to help a woman and she lil’ children over because the water was high. The trench they dig ain’t making it any better either,” she said.

Another long-time resident of the area Sam Bynoe described the problem as “absolutely disgraceful”. (RA/JJS)
