The canal running next to Dr. A.C. Wathey Cruise and Cargo Facilities stinks severely. The situation is so bad some pedestrians have reported their eyes watering from the stench.
The embankment along the trench is frequently used by walkers and cruise passengers heading into Pointe Blanche to get rental vehicles and to join other tours. The trench is also a stone’s throw away from the homeporting terminal at the port.
The canal continues to be choked by garbage that flies off uncovered garbage trucks, is tossed out of vehicle windows and from the large garbage bin situated across the road from the canal. The stagnant water has also allowed for the growth of tall grass and other weeds in the canal.
