Gracie Rock Residents Concerned About Their River

And moving on now from the ether of bureaucratic wrangling to the solid landscape of a village problem….On Monday villagers of Gracie Rock woke up to see their beloved Sibun River milky white. It's a major event in this small community where residents fish in the river and earn tourism dollars from it. Now, no one knows for sure what causes it; all they know is some development is happening upstream which discolors their stretch of the river. We spoke to a resident who told us that how his family business is being affected.

Our records show that in 2006, algae bloom was linked to effluent runoff from a Tilapia Farm in the La Democracia Area.
