Government commit 2.9 Million towards a new water supply system in Bense

first_img Share Come March 2013 residents of the communities of Bense, Hampstead and Anse De Mai are set to benefit from a new and improved water supply system.A groundbreaking and contract-signing ceremony on Monday July 09, 2012 marked the commencement of the water supply project to which the Government of Dominica has committed 2.9 million dollars.Prime Minister Hon. Roosevelt Skerrit told the signing ceremony that his government identified this project as a priority. He said notwithstanding economic challenges, his government was able to source the finances to fund such an important project.“Every demand that is placed on the government requires resources to implement it, nothing is free. In a time when the entire world has been grappling with an economic and financial crisis we have been able with the help of God to mobilize the resources not only for this project but for the number of other projects that are ongoing in this country.”The 3.6 million dollar Bense water project will involve the construction of a new intake and treatment facility along the Hampstead River along with a storage tank and associated pipe works.General Manager of DOWASCO, Bernard Ettinoffe said his company has been aware of the problems which residents of the communities have been experiencing and in 2008 DOWASCO with one million dollars from Government, undertook the first phase of the development of the Bense water system which included pipeline replacement.Ettinoffe says this, however, fell short as it failed to address all the critical issues in the forty-year old water system. Ettinoffe is confident that this new project will seek to address the shortcomings of the water supply.“This phase of the project therefore seeks to address the issues of inadequacy of water at the intake by the construction of a new intake on the Hampstead River. It also provides for a new forty five thousand gallon storage tank to complement the existing twelve thousand gallon tank, which will take the storage capacity in the community to fifty-seven thousand gallons.”Ettinoffe confirmed that the project will also seek to provide new supply and distribution lines from the intake to the storage tank and from the storage tank to existing distribution.“It further provides for the construction of an access road to facilitate construction of the intake, maintenance of the intake and construction and maintenance of the new pipelines.”He said “the new Bense water supply project is expected to be constructed during a nine month period.”Minister responsible for Water Resource Management, Hon. Reginald Austrie says this new water supply project is in keeping with Government’s goal of providing quality reliable water to communities across Dominica.“Our emphasis is on quality water, not just water and so we are spending the extra half a million dollars to ensure that the people of Bense like everyone else receives top quality water. “The Minister noted that it’s the intention of Government to provide all Dominicans with access to top quality potable water by the year 2015.“We are now at ninety-five percent and we are hoping between next year and 2014 we would have met that 100%.”Meantime, Parliamentary Representative for the Paix Bouche Constituency, Hon. Matthew Walter said the new water supply will “eliminate some of the burdens and inconveniences experienced over the years due to a lack of sufficient water supply for domestic use.”“Most of you met me and lamented over the inadequacy of water in Bense, Anse De Mai, Ansoldat. The Government was never hesitant to implement this very important project because we all understand the value of water,” he added.Government Information Service Sharing is caring!

Offensive inconsistencies plague Syracuse in 9-8 loss to Loyola in final regular season game

first_imgRiley Donahue cut through the middle of Loyola’s defense, caught a pass and fired a shot from point-blank range that clanked off the right post.Syracuse head coach Gary Gait, standing nearly level with the Loyola goal on SU’s sideline, let out a sigh and walked back toward the rest of the Syracuse bench.SU attack Kayla Treanor had just scored twice in 31 seconds to bring the Orange within a goal of Loyola with just three minutes left in the game and Donahue’s chance could have tied the score with only two minutes remaining.“She’s just a freshman and it’s tough getting that shot and putting it in,” Gait said. “We had multiple other players that had opportunities earlier and just didn’t get the job done.”Syracuse’s first half was plagued by poor shooting and missed opportunities. The Orange scored just two goals in the first half and finished the game with only eight goals on 32 shots. SU mounted a comeback, scoring six goals in the second half, but it was too late and the No. 2 Orange (14-7, 3-4 Atlantic Coast) fell to the No. 14 Greyhounds (15-4, 8-0 Patriot), 9-8, at SU Soccer Stadium on Saturday in front of a crowd of 1,022.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We were just playing a little lethargic,” Gait said. “When we shoot high-to-high and we shoot from the outside, we shoot poorly and those are the games we’ve lost throughout the year.”Syracuse dominated the possession at the beginning of the game, but its offense struggled to find the back of the net.Attack Halle Majorana had a goal called off for being in the crease and attack Kailah Kempney sent a sidearm shot wide from eight meters away that rolled up the hill behind the net.In one possession, midfielder Erica Bodt shot wide and then high on two chances cutting through the middle, before throwing her head back in frustration.Attack Devon Collins scored the Orange’s first goal quickly after Bodt’s missed shots, but it came with nearly 14 minutes gone in the half — the latest SU has scored all season.“Having off days, that happens,” Bodt said. “… we just have to focus on our fakes and finishing the shots.”Gait yelled to his players to spread out and move around on offense, constantly telling his midfielders behind him on the sideline to stop watching the ball.But only two of SU’s 14 shots in the first half went for goals and the Orange went into the break trailing, 4-2.Midway through the second half SU fell behind, 8-4, but with about 11 minutes left it seemed as though Majorana had scored SU’s third goal in a row to bring it within one.She dodged toward the crease and found the back of the net while crashing to the ground, but for the third time of the game, her goal was called off for being in the crease.Majorana got up and ran toward the referee, screaming and waving her arms. SU midfielder Gabby Jaquith intercepted Majorana on her path to the official and pulled her away. “What do you want?” Majorana yelled to someone as she walked to the bench.“It’s definitely frustrating,” Majorana said. “Definitely a mental lapse on my part.”Loyola scored on its ensuing possession, but Treanor scored twice while Majorana watched on the sideline to make it a one-goal game. SU managed one final chance on Donahue’s shot, but she wasn’t able to tie the game.The Greyhounds held the ball until the final seconds ticked off the clock.Loyola goalie Molly Wolf threw her gloves to the ground, screaming, “Let’s go,” as her teammates charged toward her.“We talked a good game about it being a playoff type game for seeding and going into the playoffs the right way,” Gait said. “Unfortunately, we weren’t up to the task today.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on May 2, 2015 at 5:59 pm Contact Jon: jrmettus@syr.edu | @jmettuslast_img read more

Moses shines as Nigeria humiliates Cameroon

first_imgAfter a rather tentative start by the home team, Ighalo marked his return with the opening goal after 29 minutes.He overpowered his marker after he received a clever assist from skipper Mikel John Obi before he fired past a diving goalkeeper Fabrice Ondoa.The Eagles doubled their lead in the 43rd minute, when Mikel turned scorer by poking a Victor Moses corner from the left beyond the Cameroon goalkeeper.In the 55th minute, Moses made it 3-0 when he initiated a quick counter and then released Moses Simon, who did well to pass back to his namesake, who fired the third goal.A fourth goal from a flying header by substitute Kelechi Iheanacho off an Onazi Ogenyi cross in the 76th minute crowned a very satisfying outing for the hosts.Both teams went into the attack from the first whistle with Cameroon threatening through Moumi Ngamaleu, but his effort from inside the box missed narrowly as Ikechukwu Ezenwa was the busier of the two goalkeepers in the early minutes of the game.The Indomitable Lions took the game to Nigeria rather than sit back in their defence.The Egyptian referee struck off a Nigerian goal by Ighalo for offside after 24 minutes, before Victor Moses header off a Moses Simon cross missed target four minutes later.However, the home fans celebrated the first goal of this bruising contest just before the half hour with Nigeria never looking back to seal an important win.Cameroon had their chances. In the 48th minute Ezenwa did well to save a low drive by Zambo Anguissa.Ezenwa then kept out a tricky shot from distance in the 64th minute before Nigeria again surged forward to create two more goals and complete the demolition of the Indomitable Lions.Share on: WhatsApp Nigerian players salute their fans.Moses helps Nigeria trounce CameroonUyo, Nigeria | AFP |  Chelsea ace Victor Moses and Chinese-based Odion Ighalo starred as Nigeria trounced Cameroon 4-0 on Friday to take a big step towards qualifying for the 2018 World Cup.The Super Eagles moved up to nine points from three matches in Group B in Africa zone qualifying, while Cameroon remain on two points. Both teams clash again on Monday in Yaounde.Zambia and Algeria have a point each and meet on Saturday in Lusaka.Cameroon’s Belgian coach Hugo Broos admitted Nigeria deserved the win.“They were better, faster and more determined than us in one against one. We had one chance maybe,” he said.Broos added the African champions will play for their honour at home on Monday, but does not fancy their chances of qualifying for the World Cup.“There is something like honour, we will defend that on Monday in Yaounde. If the players have the same attitude I have, we will fight to beat Nigeria on Monday,” he vowed.“But we will now need to win our next three matches and expect Nigeria to lose their next three games to stand any chance. I don’t think this is possible.”last_img read more
