River defence at Charity under threat
Sections of the Charity River Dam, Essequibo Coast has reportedly dropped two feet and the defence dam is being quickly washed away into the Pomeroon River.
This is according to residents living near the dam and in the Squatting Area. They expressed fear that the Dam will be breached and a massive flood will be the result.
Several persons living in the area said that the dam is being washed away because of the construction of a concrete wharf and gas station that was recently erected there.
