South Coast Sewage Stink Makes for Political Capital

Dr. Hugh Sealy’s comments carried by the Nation newspaper makes for compulsory reading. It is important because he is one of the few technocrats available who worked on the South Coast Sewage plant project team at start up- a plant that is failing and as a result leaking raw sewage on the popular strip frequented by tourists and locals alike from Hastings to Worthing.

The question BU has for our government of 8 years:-

  1. Why was a primary treatment process considered as a “treatment” method for the South Coast plant? Why did the government not see the immediate need on assuming office to integrate a secondary and even tertiary treatment process? Didn’t they tout a waste management plan?
  2. Will the Board of the Barbados Water Authority resign after supporting then general manager Dr John Mwansa’s claim in December 2016 that the manhole covers were being removed and that there was no sewage leaking into the street and sea – read Nation report BWA denial .

Already political forces have capitalized on the issue, see embedded video. It will be an interesting general election to observe how Estwick, Lowe, Boyce et al deal with this matter of effluent leaking on the South Coast road and sea. Do not forget the stench!

  • The fact thst the shit keeps backing is telling. If having to call in outside technical support tells that the problem gies beyond maintenance
    Havent you heard that recommendations suggest that new pipes are required to send some of the sewage to the barbados plant.
    All the mainteance cannot prevent an overflow of sewage and backup when the topsy too small

  • The manhole at the exit of Chicken Barn (forced to close doors) and entrance of Lucky Horse Shoe is gushing and an awful stench offends the air.

    Nuff sewage water in the road and stench in the air by Massy Rendezvous yesterday evening as well. Some water appeared to have come into the main entrance by Massy and the closed down Worthing Post Office and spread back towards the South Massy parking lot as you could see the ground was looking very damp on the driveway into the South side parking lot. Some customers going into the store were walking over the damped down areas as they made their way into Massy’s main entrance (or while walking back to their vehicles) and presumably leaving some of whatever might be on the bottom of their shoes on the Massy floor as they wandered the aisles. Hint to Massy Rendezvous janitorial staff: might be a good idea to double or triple the strength of disinfectant in your mopping water for the time being.

  • Your inability to process information logically has reached unfathomable heights. Even the government and BWA officials have admitted that we have done a lousy job at maintenance. Note the same can be said of the Bridgetown plant. We are crossing our fingers the diverting of waste to Bridgetown does not trigger other issues.

    Is UWI producing engineers who can address these problems? Can the government in the Caribbean look to UWI for solutions or must we look elsewhere?

    What about this situation makes you think that there is an engineering problem?
    Boss this is a problem of idiocy….
    …a problem of political jackasses playing games with peoples’ lives, health and future.

    A sewerage system is a basic, simple, straight forward hydraulic system. They work all over the world. blockages are ROUTINELY cleared, and breaks are ROUTINELY repaired.

    If a bunch of monkeys borrow $200M, and then proceed to steal half of it through bribes, misuse, mis-allocation and direct stealing, how does it then become an ‘engineering problem’ …that the remaining $100M is inadequate to meet the specifications outlined in the original scope? …and that you therefore end up with shiite…?

    What do you want the engineers to do? …use five loafs and fishes to feed thousands?

    The problem stems from POLITICAL idiocy in high places; from lack of accountability; from ignorance among a people – who allow short-term politicians to exploit and compromise their LONG-TERM future, through their selfishness and greed.

    Engineers shiite!
    This is probably why Grenville talks about LONG TERM solutions such as adopting ISO … rather than bringing in clueless foreigners to deal expensively with the symptoms.

    A people always get exactly what they deserve
    and we are getting our just deserts in Hastings…
    Judging from the level of ‘leaders’ we have,
    MUCH worse is yet to come……

    Did you listen to the retired BWA worker who called Brasstacks about 3 weeks ago and asked Manager of Waste at BWA Patricia Innis if they were cleaning/maintaining a section of the sewage plant and what was her response?

    It was no. She went on to ask the retired worker to leave his number and suggested the BWA was not in a position to pay, maybe a small stipend.

    The old man almost passed out because based on his knowledge of how the plant is to work the maintenance of this section was critical to an efficient process of the plant.

    @ ac

    The above is perhaps your best contribution to this forum……….. and I wholeheartedly agree with your comments.

    Your comment re: “No voter would like to find after casting their vote that the person that they cast their vote has unsavory habits that can be detrimental in their decision to the country best interest…” describes the David Thompson, who said he “cannot lie, cheat or steal,” but the Deloitte forensic audit of CLICO proved otherwise.

    Surely you must agree voters want “a bird’s eye view of the private life of” the dishonest Michael Carrington, who has the “unsavory habit” of with-holding his client’s funds and converting them to his personal use (thieving)…… and this is “a warning bell tied around (Carrington’s) neck as a sign to the voter that there is danger at hand…”

    And similar scrutiny must also be given to Michael Lashley and Denis Lowe for conflict of interest issue relative to them driving vehicles owned by Trans Tech Inc.,……….. the company that receives the majority of maintenance work for Transport Board buses and SSA trucks;

    And Freundel Stuart for conferring a national honour on Stephen Lashley for organizing the abysmal failure called CARIFESTA (a job he is paid by taxpayers of this country to do);

    How about Dr. Estwick and the new BWA headquarters……….. surely you must agree voters would want to know about the cost over-runs and financial improprieties highlighted by the Auditor General and the $1.5M Freundel’s mate, Hal Gollop, got out of that deal.

    So……. it seems as though you agree that HONEST politicians CANNOT be FOUND within the halls of the BLP and DLP.

    After all, you and the DLP promised in your 2008 manifesto that DLP politicians would DECLARE their ASSETS and SIGN on to a code of GOOD CONDUCT……….. but, as at December 17, 2017, NOT ONE DLP politician has fulfilled that promise.

    (Michael Lashley’s declaration of assets would probably include assets he with-held from clients….. so perhaps he could be excused………….. hahahahahaha!!!)

    “I submit to you the voting public” DID NOT vote for Freundel Stuart as PM nor did they “give him TWO chances of running the affairs of the country.”

    Firstly, Stuart was ACTING PM from May 2010 and subsequently “inherited” the PM title AFTER David Thompson died on October 23, 2010.

    Secondly, after the 2013 general elections, the “voting public” DID NOT choose Stuart as PM by………. he was chosen by his parliamentary colleagues.

    (2) The DLP bought votes………ask the people in St. Michael North West, for example, how much money Sinckler gave a certain man from St. Stephen’s Hill to distribute among the youngsters and how many television sets, iPads, cellular phones, laptop computers and other electronics, as well as paying utilities bills. Even a “die hard” DEM told me he got $200.

    Do you believe “PM Stuart & his team” should CLEAR THE AIR in all FAIRNESS! ACCOUNTABILITY! and TRANSPARENCY and RESPECT towards the voting public,” as it relates to the sale of: Blue Horizon Hotel, Barbados National Terminal Company and the Hilton Hotel?

    Good to see this south cost sewage mess has flushed general manager of the BWA out of the woodwork. David Estwick obviously prefers to keep a low profile at this time with a general election around the corner.

    also the sewer mess has flushed millions of dollars out of the taxpayers pocket because of a system which was flawed from its inception

    Did not Minister Estwick spoke about the plaguing issues of the system recently and suggested that the system should be replaced , There is no doubt that Estwick is not an engineer and well not schooled in that technology and would rightfully give way to the experts to give updated information
    Election what ?

    You know the system was NOT flawed from its inception……….yet you continue to push that line of argument, attempting to absolve this inept DLP administration of any blame for the mess on the South Coast and lack of maintenance.

    You agreed with Richard Sealy when he said Worthing’s beach should not have been closed on December 3, 2016, and suggested sea bathers had nothing to fear because reports of raw sewage leaking into the sea were totally untrue.

  • The point being missed in all this vote buying talk, is via transfers and subsidies, and keeping the bloated public service at full employment, this administration has already bought, potentially, more votes than it needs.
    AND, they have used the taxpayers money, whether in taxes collected or debt amassed, to pay for their advantage. And I haven’t even mentioned Party debt amassed.
    Not that certain opposition parties are incapable of similar.
    I don’t know one shiite about politics, but am a decent gambler. I picked Trump at 13-1, when the Republicans had more candidates than I can recall. Not that I liked Trump, he was a good bet. As were the Republicans when one viewed the Democrat record of forming 3 consecutive wins.
    Don’t count the D’s out. They don’t deserve to win, but are a good bet at 5-1 or longer.

  • David: I can see serious health issues by Massy Supermarket in Worthings. The driveway leading to the supermarket which incidentally is the entrance to the store has sewage water where customers traverse after parking their vehicles.

    Shoes carries endless germs, and when people walk between the aisles and place little kids in the same cart with dirty shoes after walking through the dirty water. Is that healthy? This afternoon the Health Minister talking of companies placing disinfectant waters at the door to confront any health issues. Is he fuh real?

    When people goes shopping, the majority wear from rubber to leather slippers. Are you asking these people to place exposed feet in disinfectant waters? Hello Mr. Minister, Are you serious with such advice?

    This Supermarket should be closed. Massy cannot think about the mighty dollar and forget about serious Health Issues. Ministries official cannot turn a blind eye on this shitty scenario. Schools close if a lil smoke permeate the school surroundings, Government offices close if a little stinch comes into the office. Cud dear, close the damn supermarket.

    Why should Massy close their store? The big question is where are our environmental and health inspectors? They are the ones that should be closing all supermarkets, restaurants and shops in the vicinity until the mess is cleared up.
    I say again: outsource the management of BWA. The management is incompetent.

    Stop the Gazing my friend. If the sewage water is in the driveway, how de hell will vehicles be able to get to the car park? Would you place bricks across the highway in order for pedestrians to cross the road? The MOH came up with a nonsensical idea about sanitizing foot bath. Gimme ah break!!!!!!

    Have a Merry Christmas my friend.
