North Sound farmer complains about human-waste odour from Chinese compound, but CBH claims area is ‘spic and span’

A farmer in the North Sound area has lodged a complaint with the Central Board of Health regarding the overbearing smell of faeces coming from the Chinese settlement located north of the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Grounds.
Upon investigation, a REAL News source discovered a large mound of human waste that reportedly was swarming with insects and egrets.
From photos taken at the site, the waste appears to have been mixed with soil and put out to dry. And speculation is that is meant to be used by the residents of the compound as fertilizer.
Interestingly, Jerome Greene, the Principal Public Health Inspector, tells our News Room that when two officers went to investigate today, they found the property “spic and span.”
Photos of the offending pile were shared with CBH officials, including Greene. However, he implies that the persons who are “pointing fingers” have produced no “evidence of the perpetrators,” and should give that information to “the authorities” when they have it.
Greene adds that “there is a lot of dumping being done in the area [and] it cannot be ascertained who is responsible.”
Since the area was recently cleared of vegetation, piles of garbage – including pieces of derelict equipment and housing materials – are visible from the roadside.
“Arrangements will have to be made for thorough cleaning of the areas where indiscriminate dumping occurs,” the CBH inspector says.
Late last year, after a dispute with a livestock farmer in the area, REAL News learned that the site has been earmarked for development by the Chinese. Reportedly, a business complex, along with a hotel and apartment buildings, will be erected there.
