Haiti - Politic : Digging of a new bed for the Barradères river
Patrix Sévère, the Minister of Agriculture visiting this week in Barradères (Dept. Des Nippes) announced that the work aimed, among other things, at digging a new bed for the river of Barradères will be carried out before the next rainy season and will start very soon. Some equipment has already been mobilized on the site, including two tanks of 8,000 gallons of gasoline and some heavy machinery for carrying out this work which is proving very important for the inhabitants of Barradères.

"The goal of this work is to prevent flooding when the river is in high water. The drought is the ideal time to do this work. Floods are very frequent in Barradères, it is a concern for the villagers and for the authorities "explained Minister Sévère.

"This new bed to be dug for the Barradères river will constitute a kind of diversion capable of stemming the floods," said engineer Marc Edouard Dieujuste. Adding "The Ministry will strengthen the banks of the old riverbed [...] We will break the mountain which is a few meters from the river. The materials from this operation will be used to erect dikes. There will also be bank reinforcements upstream for about 1 kilometer [...]".

Steps are being taken this week to install fuel tanks that will supply heavy equipment during the work.
