Editorial: Raw sewage

POSTED: 05/2/12 11:50 AM

We have known Theophilus Priest for quite some time and we have never seen him so mad as he was yesterday.

His outrage is understandable: the owner of neighboring apartments pumps raw sewage into his yard and nobody seems to be able or willing to do anything about it.

This is obviously a ridiculous and unsustainable situation. Not only is this an infringement on the standard of living of Priest and quite some of his neighbors, it is also an immediate health hazard.

Stagnant water is an ideal breeding ground for mosquitoes and that is something any neighborhood can very well do without.

The question is of course why the authorities have not acted yet against the polluting apartment owner. Neighborhood residents have their suspicions about this, and what’s more, the anger levels have risen to such a level that the situation is becoming volatile.

There is still a whole day available today for some government entity to take the appropriate action before everybody throws himself on the Carnival celebrations.

So hurry up inspectors: there is serious work to do.
