An alternative water system now appears to be in the cards for the Southern communities of Soufriere who are said to be continuing to make efforts to build resilience following Hurricane Maria.
According to RezDM project manager, Simon Walsh, this new system will provide a back-up water system which is urgently needed, because the current water supply is of great concern.
He says luckily there is a supply of water from an underground spring,
but there is a certain level of anxiety as it pertains to the uncertainties about this hurricane season, and all precautions are being taken.
He added that there is a vision of building a water system on the compound of the new primary school, that could store 15,000 gallons, but if they want real resiliency, they will need a back-up water supply.
