Water Minister says inadequate investments in Jamaica’s water infrastructure may have led to low supply and demand failures

The lack of adequate investments in Jamaica’s water infrastructure may have led to low supply of the commodity, and the inability to meet the demands of the population.

The comment was made by Water Minister Matthew Samuda last evening while speaking at the University of the West-Indie’s forum “down to the last drop, tackling Jamaica’s water woes.”

He highlighted that the two main dams in Kingston are evidence of the slow developmental process. 

In the meantime, Mr. Samuda said over 3 million USD has been allocated for repairing water infrastructure.
