Thirty-Seven Down, Three To Go – KSAMC’s Drain-Cleaning Mission “Nearly Complete”


By Gavin Riley

The Kingston and St. Andrew Municipal Corporation (KSAMC) is nearly finished with its drain-cleaning exercise across the Corporate Area, so reports Deputy Mayor Winston Ennis.

Ennis, who was updating Jamaica Today following the monthly general meeting of the KSAMC at its headquarters on Tuesday, September 11, said that of the 40 divisions, only three are yet to be completed in the annual drain-cleaning project.

“I think we are in a better position now than even last year, because most of our drains – especially the critical ones – have been cleaned. In fact, of the 40 divisions, 38 projects have started, 37 have finished, one is in progress and two are yet to start,” he said.

The three remaining divisions to be completed are Waterloo and Seivwright Gardens and Allman Town.

The annual drain-cleaning exercise forms a very important part of the corporation’s activities as the city and the country at large gears up for what is shaping up to be a very active hurricane season.
