Experts to look at Bosai tailings pond dyke
Two environmental experts are this morning expected to look at the dyke at the Kara Kara end of the Bosai Minerals Group Guyana Incorporated’s tailings pond in Linden.
Regional chairman Sharma Solomon has requested the services of environmental consultants, Charles Ceres and Samuel Wright, who will accompany Bosai engineer, Wayne Bethune to examine areas where breaches have periodically occurred at the Kara Kara end of the tailings pond. This has caused flooding of yards and properties in the Kara Kara and Rainbow City residential areas .
The Kara Kara creek is the main area of concern since farmers use water from it for domestic and agricultural purposes.
The Bosai representatives told Stabroek News on Saturday that the breaches in the dyke have resulted from continuous heavy rainfall over the last quarter of last year and this January.
