NWA's shoreline environmental project hits snag
2013-02-22 09:10:02 | with audio | (0 Comments)
The National Works Agency (NWA) says it has started restoration and replanting of seagrass along the Palisadoes shoreline in keeping with its licence from the National Environmental Protection Agency (NEPA).
The NWA's response came after the Jamaica Environment Trust (JET) called for the works minister, Dr. Omar Davies, to indicate whether the environmental remediation work had been done now that the Palisadoes Shoreline project is complete.
Manager of communication and customer services at the NWA, Stephen Shaw, said he has been advised that the work has started.
However, he said the agency has experienced challenges in restoring the mangroves.
JET has noted that the Palisadoes is a protected area and therefore should be strictly managed.
