The Public Utilities Regulatory Commission (PURC) has expanded its pro-poor water project to Madina to ensure that portable water is accessible and affordable to the community.

Under the project, six bore holes have been constructed in different localities of the communities including Madina Zongo, Nkwantanan and Attraco to improve regular portable water supply to the community.

This follows a successful pilot of the project, which is a collaborative effort between the PURC, the Ghana Water Company and Water Aid, an international NGO.

Under the pilot phase, the PURC inaugurated seven stand pipes at Glefe, 10,000 litres of storage tanks at Teshie and Nima.

The project forms part of the current Urban Water Project of the World Bank and its success would ensure the replication of such projects in other deprived communities.
