PR– The Ministry of Infrastructure and Physical Development, Public Utilities, Civil Aviation and Transportation recommenced the Government’s debushing programme on Monday, August 22, 2022, ahead of the peak period of the Atlantic hurricane season.
The debushing programme seeks to clear overhanging branches, drains and roadways to mitigate incidents of flooding and other damage that may result from heavy rainfall.
This year, the programme will be implemented in two phases; from August 22 to September 16, 2022; and from November 14 to December 9, 2022. A total of 2,872 persons were employed to assist the Government in this process.
The public is encouraged to do its part to trim overhanging trees and clear drains, on or near property, as we prepare for this period of heightened precipitation and storm activity.
