Jamaica: Williams Says Flood Mitigation Remains A Priority For KSAMC

Mayor of Kingston, Delroy Williams, says flood mitigation planning remains a priority for the municipality.

“The municipality is concerned about flooding and is committed to flood mitigation and the reduction of flood damage. We must prepare, adopt, implement and update the comprehensive flood hazard mitigation plan using standard planning processes,” he said.

“We must become committed to review, analyse and discuss flooding issues and the potential mitigation measures for communities across the municipality,” he added.

Williams was addressing Tuesday’s monthly meeting of the Kingston and St Andrew Municipal Corporation (KSAMC) at the Jamaica Conference Centre in downtown Kingston.

He said that the corporation will be meeting with key stakeholders to address the issue of increased runoffs and to see how best to minimise the damage caused by flooding.
