A resident of Ravine Poisson has renewed calls for local health authorities to address what he says is the contamination of a water catchment source in the community.

Mr Victor Semayee says he has unsuccessfully attempted to alert officials on how grave the situation is but his calls have fallen on deaf ears.

He claims that family members have been affected by the contamination which is caused by the disposal of faecal matter from a pig farm above the water catchment area.

Simayee says the problem is now more acute especially as wasco and met officials have warned St Lucians to brace for severe drought conditions this year.

Simayee has prescribed the relocation of the pig farm in order to remedy the problem. He says he last alerted health officials to the situation about three months ago.

Despite promises from health officials to reach a compromise with the pig farm owner, the problem continues to persist
