Monumental mistakes were made by previous administrators of the city, both at the level of Central Government and the Georgetown Municipality, which may have forever compromised the integrity of the drainage system.This is according to City Mayor, Hamilton Green,Air Max Scontate Donne, who revealed that certain strategic canals around the city were filled up and were crucial to allow an effective drainage process of excess water on the land.Among the areas filled were Punt Trench, south of Albouystown (now Independence Boulevard), the East Street canal (now the John Ford Car Park), Church Street Canal (now Merriman’s Mall) and a number of others. Mayor Green explained that when the city was designed and laid out by the Dutch and British, these waterways not only facilitated the transporting of cane but also provided storage for ‘storm’ water during heavy rains.A garbage infested canal“When we filled in those canals we ignored the wisdom of our predecessors. The consequences are obvious and sad in all local communities in our capital.”And due to the rapid changing pattern of life in the city, post World War II, and the pressure for housing, the municipality witnessed social and ecological changes. Even with constant desilting of canals and waterways there was and still is the factor of aggressive aquatic growth,Discount Shoes Online, a situation which according to the Mayor, is exacerbated by the phenomenon of excessive use and disposal of plastic, styrofoam and other non-biodegradable materials by citizens at all levels.“In spite of our pleadings, many continue to indulge in this unfriendly environmental activity. These have contributed, in no small manner to the blockage of our culverts,Discount Air Max 90, trenches and canals.”The Mayor revealed to media practitioners last week that during the recent rainfalls, the southern grill that protects the Liliendaal pump had collapsed with the sudden rush of a pile of rubbish flowing to that facility.And though the Council has detailed workers with the appropriate tools to remove debris from that area, Public Relations Officer, Royston King, has conceded that working at nights to protect the facility is difficult and could prove to be hazardous. He disclosed also that a recent examination by city engineers revealed that a pontoon owned by a private contractor, was grounded at the Cowan Street outfall.“This slowed the flow of water out of the city. Additionally, the accumulation of silt around the pontoon restricted the amount of water that could be discharged into the Demerara River.”But even in the face of these challenges, King disclosed that the Municipality remains committed to securing the proper drainage of Georgetown. However, the Council is pleading with all citizens to help by desisting from dumping waste materials in the city’s waterways, which not only clog the system and inhibit the flow of water through these channels, but also has the potential for huge public health problems.King disclosed that although the Municipality continually cleans the areas around the market, within a day the accumulation of plastic and other such materials find their way and block inlets, which slows the flow of water. Another focus,Liverpool FC New Jersey 2018/19, he said,Asics Kayano 23 Pas Cher, is the daily accumulation of silt at the western end of the outfall channel at the Demerara River.“Our workers have started to clean these,Adidas Basketball Shoes Sale, beginning at Cowan Street, but only total co-operation of all stakeholders can prevent the period of water retention on the city which continues to be a source of discomfort,” King asserted.
