Consejo Road is finally been fix

Consejo Village Residence is happy to hear that the road was finally fix. After The road was under water for days. Two weeks ago the north part of Corozal got a heavy rain fall that flooded the road that reached 2 feet high. And the story doesn't ends here. When the water rose the garbage on mile two stood up on top of the water. The water reached to a point that only large vehicles could pass. Nemo was alerted on the north part of Corozal that they concentrate on the Consejo Shore road to fix it well. The road's use is used minimal by Students, workers, villager's, that travel daily to Corozal Town. It is difficult for some to reach to Corozal Town. Small vehicles in the road could be seen that they couldn't pass because of mud puddle being made. "We tried to scraped the road since that it hasn't rained for the past 72 hours. We cannot do much at this time because the road was still wet and we are still in the hurricane season. Unfortunatley, do not get distract that the road will get fix quite well. We are still in the hurricane season and the public needs to be aware that even if it is fix fold condition appears. We are trying our best to fix the road , we know that when it rains water levels rises, but this time we can only fix the road until hurricane season is over. Nemo of Corozal Willard Levy said.

There is another problem being obsereved in the Consejo Road is the Garbage dump. Villagers were dissapointed of foolded roads now the Garbage dump is an issue on the Consejo Road. Everyday Villagers use that road and they seen how trashy it may look. Since the road has been flooded after the heavy rains in the last few days. Nemo of Corozal says that the health problem may be one of which to be, because a lot of bacteria, chemicals, and things we do not know may give the people health problem. Corozal Nemo Levy said that as the heath conditions we are trying to make the Minister of Health and Minister of work to see the conditions of the Garbage dump. At this moment Garbage is dumbed else because of the wet condition of the surrounding area. Until the place is dried up Minister of Health and works will then decide what will be done. On the Domnguez Layout it was only dump for one day. we cannot do nothing at this moment on the old dump until the water is dried up. we are doing this in the sense for no more bacteria grow for health issues and dump is taken else. Levy Said.

Garbage found on Caye Caulker and San Pedro Coast Line

Everyday we enjoy the beach in San Pedro and the majority times we see the beach clean. But this week it all change for the residence of San Pedro and Caye Caulker. This week a report came in that Garbage was seen floating on the water on Caye Caulker late wednesday evening. Some areas were completely covered by Garbage in some beach areas, including the Split. On the Western Part of Caye Caulker some areas were cover as well with garbage. Ressdence in Caye Caulker are questioning what may had brought this garbage to shore. Chairman of Caye Caulker Villag said "The garbage started washing up late on Wednesday evening. This morning when we woke up it was worse – very disastrous." Residence in Caulker are worried at this time, because they depend on tourism and now that is slow season they don't want the tourist to see the beach filled with garbage. At this moment Caye Caulker residence are working on forming a campaign to clean the garbage and countinue their normal living.

In San Pedro has not much debry in the island, but  some part of the beach areas can still be visible by Garbage. in the island is not a surprise that this has happened before. Garbage that was seen in San Pedro and Caye Caulker was bottles, cans, covers, sticks and more. Everyday the beach was clean all day every and not much they could have done since more and more Garabge wash on shore. The Department of the Environment was notified late Wednesday evening, and Thursday September 26, they dispatched a team of personnel to investigate the situation. San Pedro depends on Tourism and the Belize Tourism Board was notified and they are planning to poolassist in cleaning up the Garbage over the weekend.

This Garbage floating in the water, is not coming from the cruise ships which was looked at over the Belize Port. In Honduras heavy rain in subtropical may had push water and debry down to the Belize River. This may had cause by flooding or heavy rain in higher grounds, high tides when river run off or when a boat filled with garbage was passing infront of  Belize and some garbage may had fallen of the boat and washed onshore.
