Last weekend, Prime Minister, Hon. Dr. Kenny D. Anthony paid a visit to the John Compton Dam located at the upper part of Roseau. The Prime Minister was accompanied by the General Manager of WASCO, Mr. Vincent Hippolyte and other technical staff of WASCO.

During the visit, the Prime Minister was taken by dinghy across the lake of water and visited the hinterland of the dam to look at the slides which had caused major siltation of the dam.

After the visit the Prime Minister observed that "while the dam is an incredibly peaceful and serene environment, government has a major, almost unprecedented challenge on its hands.  

He noted that De-silting the dam will be a massive undertaking perhaps stretching over several years.

WASCO is absolutely right to review all options and secure the best technical advice that is available to resolve the problem.”
