 LWSC Breaks Ground For US$199k Zwedru Water Facility

By Chris Nyenapee, LINA Grand Gedeh County Correspondent

ZWEDRU, August 27 (LINA) – The Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC) has kicked off the construction of sanitation facilities in Zwedru City valued at over US$199,000.

Speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony in Zwedru Wednesday, LWSC Managing Director Charles Allen said the facility when completed will supply safe drinking to over 27,000 residents in Zwedru and its surroundings.

He told stakeholders at the ceremony that the project, which is being funded by the African Development Bank (AfDB), is expected to be completed in six months.

The LWSC official, however, noted that a series of measures are underway, including the training of students at institutions of higher learning around Liberia, aimed at building the capacity of future managers.

In response, Grand Gedeh County Superintendent Peter Solo lauded the LWSC management team and AfDB for the project and promised the fullest cooperation of the citizens to ensure successful completion.

The AfDB Sanitation project is expected in four other counties, including Montserrado,  Sanniquellie, Kakata and Buchanan, to ease the water and sanitation problems in those cities.
