Officials at the Water Resource Management Agency have urged for conservation practices to be effected immediately as St Lucia is presently experiencing a dry spell.

Authorities say a valving or rationing scheme may have to be instituted if this situation continues.

This comes as the Saint Lucia Meteorological Services predicts the island will receive normal to below normal rainfall within the next three to six months based on rainfall data from the past 35 years.

Additionally, WASCO has reported indicate that the present rainfall does not allow for satisfactory water storage and therefore cannot adequately meet the country’s demand.

Water Resource Management Officer Fitzgerrald John has made a special appeal.

We will be hearing more on the situation later in today’s newsspin program.
