Crooked Tree Residents Worry About When Water Will Recede

Lionel Smith

But when will the water recede? Lionel Smith says that Crooked Tree residents are concerned about when that is going to happen. Smith says that he is waiting to hear from either the National MET Service or the Hydrology Unit about the outlook.

“We are waiting for an updated to hear from them as well because the villagers are concerned. What I gather from the villagers is that they normally see the water stand still for a period of time, especially if we have little rains here and there. And we also have to bear in mind that the grounds is also well saturated because of the volume of water and rain that we are getting. So we are monitoring that very closely and we will leave it up to the professionals to decide how we move forward. We have the Crooked Tree Lodge Resort that has taken on water, so as we speak we have some people out there doing some assessments because also out in Flowers Bank Village we have been getting reports that the water that comes over the land has been leaving a stench behind. So we have some people out there today doing some assessments and we will gather that information and then we will know exactly what is taking place.”
