Residents fed up with dirty canal
Concerned Halls Road, St Michael residents have called on officials to clean up a nearby canal which they say have been breeding mosquitos.
One resident who requested anonymity told Barbados TODAY that she was tired and fed up with the insects putting she, her family and her neighbours at risk.
She pleaded for something to be done about the situation urgently.
“You can’t even go in the gallery and sit down. The flies and the mosquitoes coming and biting everybody,” she said.
“The canal needs cleaning because it is very bushy, the tree tall up to the bridge, a lot of dirty water inside of it and nobody is doing anything. We complain and up to now nobody ain’t do anything about it,” the angry resident complained.
