DEH staff work on a hot spot at the dump on Wednesday

(CNS): Cayman Islands Fire Service officers were at the George Town landfill Wednesday morning exploring an area where smoke was seen by Department of Environmental Health staff. Both teams are said to be excavating areas of concern near the top of the dump but officials said no smoke is currently visible. CIFS and DEH staff are damping down any hot areas, which the fire service said was a preventive and precautionary measure, adding that there was no risk to public safety.

        Until we improve our public education system the problem will never be solved.

        Our politicians do not have the intellectual acumen to deal with the Dump which has now been proven for 20 years. They still don’t know what to do.
        Incredible.

      But I thought Alden and Joey announced just before the election that the Dump problem had been solved.

      Guess they lied to us as there was no agreement with Dart.

      What is new?
