MOWT: Water Levels In Bamboo Settlement #2 Have Significantly Receded

To date, the water levels in Bamboo Settlement #2 area have significantly receded following the passage of an unexpected weather system which lasted for several days resulted in widespread flooding in several communities across Trinidad.

Bamboo Settlement was one of the more severely affected areas.

The Ministry of Works and Transport said as a matter of urgency, two mobile pumps, were utilized at Hosein Circular Road to extract excess water from the community.

In a media release on Friday, the Ministry said the mobile pumps have now been relocated to the stationary Pump House at Bamboo #2, and will strengthen existing flood relief efforts for the area as they operate simultaneously.

Additionally, as water levels in the Guayabal River continue to decrease, the Drainage Division has operationalized the sluice gate located at Mohan Street, Bamboo Settlement #2 (gates have been open) to assist with the runoff of the flood water.
