Jamaica - Reform of Secondary Education (02) : environmental assessment (Inglês)

The Reform of Secondary Education (02) Project for Jamaica will construct new schools in a selected site under the project. The proposed site is likely to undergo more scrutiny by NEPA because of its coastal location and underlying limestone, and the historical properties in the area (namely the Green Grotto caves). In a preliminary discussion of the site with NEPA officials, they expressed some concern about water supply issues and solid waste disposal, as well as the effect on the limestone caves located in the area. An alternative site has been identified in the event that the preferred location is rejected by NEPA. The proposed site is located on about 14 acres of government land, on a small elevation above the main section of the town. The site is heavily vegetated, near a former railroad station, which tracks now closed. Architects and engineers have visited the site, and no major environmental or cultural issues are identified with the proposed selection; however, no alternative site has been identified. The town's water supply comes from rainwater catchment tanks, and this would be the proposed plan for the new school. There are plans to bring piped water to the town, but until that happens, the school design will likely include the rainwater catchment tanks.
