Zwedru Gets Pipe-borne Water
By Prince Nagbe

ZWEDRU, May 3 (LINA) - Residents of Zwedru, the provincial capital of Grand Gedeh County, now have access to pipe-borne water for first time in at least two decades.
 
The Officer-in-Charge (OIC) of the Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC) Grand Gedeh branch, Eastman Kruah, disclosed this at a round-table discussion of the various line ministries of government organized by Grand Gedeh County Superintendent Peter L. Solo.

The round-table discussion, which was chaired by Information Minister Lewis Brown, took place Friday at the administration building in Zwedru.

According to Kruah, LWSC Zwedru is currently supplying over 92,000 gallons of pipe-borne water to over 40 registered customers, including 30 households, seven business customers and four Government of Liberia (GOL) customers four days in the week.

The LWSC Zwedru boss told the gathering that the project is solely sponsored by the government to ensure that every inhabitant of Zwedru and its environs has access to safe drinking water and good sanitation facilities.

 “We have been able to contain about 95 percent leakage on our main distribution and transmission lines,” he said.

Kruah further disclosed that the water being supplied in Zwedru is one of the best in the country in that it contains high vital minerals, including Calcium and Magnesium, making it easily purified by using chlorine only.

He noted that the project will be expanded by 1.5 km and six to seven hours within Zwedru as many people are now demanding the service.

The service is being provided at a very cheap price, he said.

Meanwhile, Kruah has disclosed that the Liberian Government, in collaboration with the African Development Bank, will construct six modern latrines and rehabilitate three existing ones with shower facilities in Zwedru City.

He put the cost of the water and sanitation project at about US$1.13 million, saying it will be completed within a time frame of 18 months.
