Marigot Bay is visited by thousands of tourists every year and many businesses have been set up to take advantage of this boom. Many of these have had problems maintaining their septic systems because the water table in the bay is high, which means there is an incidence of leeching of sewage from the soak-aways into the bay. Worried about this situation, Caribbean SEA (Student Environmental Alliance) and student members from Marigot Bay undertook a series of water tests to check the level of pollution in the water, managing to influence the Marigot Business Association to bring about change.
