Government to spend $7B this calendar year on water projects

The government will be spending about $7 billion this calendar year on projects that will ensure more Jamaicans have access to potable water.

That’s according to Water Minister, Senator Matthew Samuda.

Speaking with Irie Fm during the 2024 World Water Day exposition at the Mary Mount High School in St. Mary, on Friday, Mr. Samuda said the funds will be spent on improving water distribution.

He added that the government will benefit from a $US30 million Caribbean Development Bank, (CDB), loan, which will be used to fund water improvement projects in Trelawny, St. Mary and St. Thomas.
