Country Overview

The fresh water resources of The Bahamas are both finite and vulnerable. The current estimate of available water per head of population will decrease with time as the increased demands from industry, agriculture, and population growth continues. The uncontrolled development of land is resulting in land use that will limit the abstraction of water from beneath sites of development due to incompatible land use. The lack of regulation and enforcement of existing regulations on land use, agriculture, pesticides, domestic sewage, landfill sites, solid waste disposal, and the abstraction of water has resulted in the degradation of the resource. To date, the pollution and degradation by natural as well as anthropogenic sources and causes is yet limited to specific sites, and limited in magnitude.
