Cistern Water Pollution in the Caribbean
The Caribbean and the US Virgin Islands have a predominant water problem that is mostly triggered by floods and hurricanes. Sitting close to seas and oceans has its perks, but due to the atmospheric weather condition, it also poses major threats to lives and properties across the islands. Because of the proximity to water bodies, one would think the Caribbean islands wouldn’t have water problems, but this isn’t the case. The problem is not the availability, but the quality as a sizeable percentage of water on this island’s cisterns are polluted.
