$10M approved to start dredging of Moruca River


President Dr. Irfaan Ali on Thursday announced that the dredging of the Moruca River in Region One (Barima- Waini) should start by Friday, a move he believes will aid scores of residents.

The President made the announcement at the start of his two-day outreach in the region.

While engaging Waramuri residents, the President acknowledged that residents have long called for the river to be dredged to make transportation easier as they mainly travel by boat.

“I’ve instructed already that $10 million be transferred to the region and by tomorrow, the team that has been established must start the clearing of the river by tomorrow,” he said.

The Moruca River is a major waterway in Region One and it is used by residents to get to communities within the Moruca sub-region. The mouth of the river opens into the Atlantic Ocean.
