Wha rass Cain know bout LEASE wata, he ah one GT bhai who only seems to know whea me Danish fren Inga put she finga ah Strand.
Anta, who knows who might have the right name. Names were butchered so much in Guyana, that its hard to know which one is right.
But what Leonora described makes sense, because the LEASE water trench I knew at Albion was stagnant water. It was a storage trench, with no exit to other trenches. But later the lease water was release into other trenches, that blacken the water and killed the fishes. The fishes would surface and seems to suffocate.
Release black water in drainage trenches to the ocean, was not only bad for fishes, but also not good for animals and crops.
Regarding butchered names. I was in GY and trying to find a guy name Harold, no one knew him, until I describe de man without any head hair and everyone know Balhead rum shop. Same with cane field, after its flooded for a while and drained. We called it BANDIN and I later discovered it was ABANDON. Then someone gave me an English word meaning the same thing.
