Flagaman Irrigation System Feasibility Study Far Advanced
State Minister in the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture, and Fisheries, Hon. Floyd Green, says the feasibility study being developed for the proposed irrigation system in Flagaman, St. Elizabeth, is far advanced.
The system is projected to take water from the Black River to supply some 5,000 farmers whose cultivations are impacted by drought annually.
Additionally, Mr. Green said plans are underway to design the layout of the irrigation system and determine the cost for the project’s implementation.
