In the old days, the Constitution River would have been overflowing even into the bus terminal, when it rained heavily or at high tide. It would have been especially problematic for it to facilitate the volume of water rushing through the shallow canal if Tropical Storm Chantal had “inflicted” her full fury on Barbados.
But these days, with the ongoing dredging and rehabilitation work there, a greater volume of water would be able to flow with few or no such challenges. In fact, due to the transformation of the canal, the water which stagnated in years gone by, is now flowing freely both ways, officials explained today. The new “river” is ten feet deeper. (EJ)
