THE PRIME MINISTER says flood mitigation is being done not only in the Greenvale, La Horquetta area, but throughout Trinidad.
He was responding to a question in the House on Monday from Oropouche West MP Vidia Gayadeen-Gopeesingh, who asked, given his recent assurance to residents of Greenvale that flood mitigation work is to start, when similar work will start in south Trinidad to prevent devastating yearly flooding.
Dr Rowley said he did not tell the Greenvale residents when the work will begin.
“What I did was tour the advanced state of preparation to deal with improved hydraulic management around Greenvale, and I am pleased to announce that that work is very well advanced. And similar works, not only in Greenvale, but all over Trinidad.”
