Port Elizabeth Harbor Drainage

In the spring of 2013 the Grenadines Partnership Fund joined private donors on behalf of the Community Foundation of St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Action Bequia to support the Port Elizabeth Drain and Harbor Beautification Project. Phase I of the project was completed by early May 2013.

The project is multi-faceted including elements of beautification, sanitation and safety. Parking lots and walkways have been reconfigured; open concrete trench drains have been covered, and a sea water flushing system has been added to help keep the drains free of stagnant water and trash.

The initial efforts have dramatically improved Bequia’s most important business district.
