An official in the Ministry of Agriculture has raised concern with the dumping of soil along the coast line.

Soil scientist Dr. Al-Mario Casimir says the dumping of soil on the coastlines of Dominica post Hurricane Maria will have a negative impact on the marine ecosystem.

He says the practice could threaten a number of Dominica’s aquatic life.


Meantime Dr Casimir says there are some positive signs that Dominica’s rain forests and soils are recovering post Hurricane Maria.
