The current situation. Integrated water resources management. Backgroung to the existing land use and water zoning policy. The consequences of illegaly constructed homes in zones 1 areas. Map 1 existing water zones. Technical options considered for the Belle. Final recommendations for consideration and discussion.
The following paper describes the existing groundwater protection zoning policy, outlines its strengths and shortcomings and proposes a new integrated approach to protection of all of the island’s water resources, including coastal waters. The existing policy was created over 50 years ago, at a time of much less freshwater demand, a less
densely populated island with most of its population concentrated on the south and west coasts, limited use of persistent hazardous chemicals, and in the absence of modern wáter and wastewater treatment technologies. Although progressive at the time, the existing policy is no longer adequate. It restricts development over large swathes of land and over the years there has been encroachment in some Zone 1 areas.
