The Department of Agriculture says it is working to have the government implement a new Water Policy to ensure the commodity is provided to the agriculture sector.That’s because there are no specific allocations for farming purposes, based on the levels of water currently supplied.
Director of Agriculture Melvin James says that the situation creates a problem, especially during the dry season.“In St Kitts, we have very limited amounts of water but there is no fixed written policy, as far as I know, to determine how the water will be allocated. For example let’s say every million because water is usually referenced in millions, for every million gallons that are dispersed from our wells is there a fixed amount that should go to x,y,z, how much should go to domestic use, how much should go to industrial activity.
