Mona GeoInformatics Institute (MGI) Featured on Kingston Harbour Hydrodynamic Modelling Project

"The Mona GeoInformatics Institute (MGI) is currently conducting hydrodynamic modelling of solid waste in the Kingston Harbour to gauge the impact of the distribution and spread of garbage flowing into this major water body from multiple land-based sources. 

MGI is building on some recent developments aimed at reducing the level of pollution in the Harbour, specifically the commissioning of the Soapberry Sewage Treatment Plant. This treatment plant has reduced the effluent pollution into the harbour; the MGI exercise seeks to look at the nature of solid waste inflows, particularly from gullies."
