Mr. Worlanyo Siabe, the Upper West Regional Director of Community Water and Sanitation Agency, has appealed to the six beneficiary districts of the Sustainable Rural Water and Sanitation Project to pay their share of the five per cent component of the fund.
The Project is to provide 300 boreholes for the districts and the World Bank is financing it with $75 million.
The districts are Wa Municipal, Nadowli, Wa West, Wa East, Sissala East and Lambussie/Karni.
He appealed to the districts to avoid selecting disputed lands for the project because this has the potential to delay the project.
Mr. Siabe said this at the Wa West District launch of the project in Wechiau on Tuesday.
He appealed to the implementers of the project to give priority to communities that have high incidence of water borne diseases.
Mr. Seidu Tungbani, Wa West District Chief Executive, said he was happy that the project would provide potable for people to help reduce the incidence of water borne diseases.
The project would also help women to undertake more income generating ventures as they would now have more hours to work with.
