LWSC To Build US$199K Sanitation Facility in Zwedru

ZWEDRU CITY, April 17 (LINA) -The Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC) will construct a US$199,234 sanitation facility in Zwedru, the provincial capital of Grand Gedeh County.

The facility, which will be completed in six months, will serve over 27,000 residents of Zwedru.

It is being funded by the African Development Bank (ADB), according to the Liberia News Agency.

In remarks during the ground breaking ceremony recently, LWSC Managing Director Charles Allen disclosed that a series of measures, including technical training and academic capacity building, are underway to prepare future managers of the corporation.

Mr. Allen said the rehabilitation and construction of sanitation facilities will be followed by the supply of safe drinking water to Zwedru City, with assistance from the ADB.

He disclosed that also to benefit from this phase are Kakata and Buchanan, with a combined total cost of US$535,501.

Allen said of the US$40 million ADB grant, only US$3 million has been disbursed, leavingUS$37 million to handle other components, including capacity building and water supply to meet up with the Millennium Development Goals by 2015.

“Water and sanitation are blood that everybody needs to work and function effectively,” said Allen.

In remarks, Grand Gedeh Superintendent Peter Solo hoped that construction materials will be delivered on time to meet the target date for completion of the sanitary facilities.

He thanked the LWSC and ADB for selecting Zwedru along with other cities as the initial beneficiaries of the ADB grant in support of water and sanitation projects.

He added that the county development office through its project planner will help monitor construction work to avoid theft and other delays.
