DCE says Bongo water problem solved

Mr. Clement Akugre, District Chief Executive (DCE) for Bongo, on Wednesday said the perennial water problem in the area has been solved.

He said the Small Town Water System constructed for the area now supplied the entire Bongo Township with pipe-borne water.

Mr Akugre was addressing a forum in Bongo on the performance of the Assembly since 2009.

The meeting also highlighted achievements and explained policies and programmes of Government.

Mr Akugre said 120 household latrines and five institutional ones have also been constructed between 2009 and 2010, to improve sanitation in the district under the sanitation component of the project.

He said the Government was working tirelessly to meet the water and sanitation needs of the citizenry as part of efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) on water and Sanitation.

Mr Akugre said the district would also benefit from 85 boreholes, while the construction of 30 mechanized boreholes to be powered by solar were on going.

He said 12 boreholes have been constructed under the Pilot Pragmatic Scheme grant for 12 basic schools in the district.

The DCE said, water systems were been built at  Zorkor and Soe communities and their environs under the Sustainable Rural Water and Sanitation Project (SRWSP),

He said under the SRWSP, a component of 20 boreholes would be constructed in the district.

Mr Akugre said Dua, Lungu, Kuyelingo, Boko, Kodorogo, Apuwongo and Bogrigo, Beo-Tankoo and Gaborogo in the district would be connected to the national electricity grid.
