By Zoila Palma: The village of San Juan/Cowpen is now receiving much needed Flood Mitigation works this week.
Equipment owned by the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) began works in that village, excavating and cleaning drains to facilitate the free flow of water in times of excess rainfall.
The works are being supervised by NEMO Southern Regional Coordinator Keith Emmanuel and Stann Creek District Coordinator David Cruz along with personnel from the Ministry of Works.
Direction on the ground is also being provided by San Juan/Cowpen Village Chairman Carlos Peraza and Councillor Abby Blades.
The works are part of NEMO’s ongoing, countrywide flood mitigation program which saw similar drainage works having been executed in Corozal, Belize, Cayo and Toledo Districts.
