Title

Stagnant water in Brown's Gully, Morant Bay

Description

"Health hazard - Brown's Gully in Morant Bay has stagnant water and heavy morass all year round except when there's a down-pour of rain to flush the gully. It is one of the many breeding grounds for mosquitoes and ring-worms. In addition, residents have been using the gully as a dumpling ground which makes things rather worse."
