Saint Lucia Scheme in RFP Stage

The Government of Saint Lucia, the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) and the Water and Sewerage Company (WASCo) Inc., are set to launch the John Compton Dam Rehabilitation Project today. 

The dam was built with a reservoir design capacity of three million cubic meters of water or 660 000 million gallons of water. However, following Hurricane Tomas in 2010, the dam’s capacity was compromised by 1.1 million cubic meters of silt.

In 2013, the situation became even worse, bringing the silt levels to 1.5 million cubic meters.

The objective of the project is to restore the reservoir to its original capacity. At present the John Compton Dam Rehabilitation Project is at the Request for Proposals (RFP) stage, with a December 16 deadline.

This scheme will involve primarily the dredging of sediments from the reservoir and proper disposal at an engineered site, water augmentation, infrastructural rehabilitation, and watershed restoration and management.
