There are no surface streams. Catchment bowls developed on Green Mountain in the nineteenth century yield some new water, however desalinization plants create the main part of the island’s water supply. The sandy shorelines, unprotected by coral reefs, are helpless against overwhelming maritime swells however are basic settling locales for the internationally jeopardized green ocean turtles, which come ashore to lay eggs between January and April.
