The dam company’s responsibilities

Dear Editor,

With regards to the BELPO press release concerning the need for a safety alert system to let people know when the rivers will rise due to dam operations, this is essential and should have been in place a long time ago.

We must recognize that the dam is a money making operation — a business — and uses precious Belizean resources to function. There should be outrage if just one Belizean mother has to bury a child due to neglect on the part of the entities financially gaining from operating the dam and using Belizean resources to do so.

At the very least, the dam company (no pun intended) should be providing a system toward the safety and protection of Belizeans.
