Georgeville Water Project Commences, Villagers Urged to Conserve Water During Installation
A meter installation and reservoir project has officially begun in Georgeville, Cayo District. The project is a collaborative effort between the Belize Social Investment Fund (SIF), Ministry of Rural Transformation, Community Development, Labour and Local Government, and the George Ville Water Board. The project is expected to take six weeks, which will see the ministry will install four additional water tanks to ensure villagers have access to water. SIF announced today that a Project Monitoring Committee (PMC) has been established to oversee the project and ensure minimal interference to the community. The PMC is comprised of the Village Chairperson, Carol Harrison; Water Board Secretary Amber Myvett; Village Council Representative, Herman Mckoy; Rural Community Development Officer, Dominga Shack, Rural Health Representative Diane Pascascio; and Teacher, Joyce Hall. Villagers with concerns about the project are urged to reach out to members of the PMC for information. SIF and the Ministry as asking villagers to conserve water over the next few weeks while the project is underway.
