Cape Mount Citizens Appeal For Reduction In Price of Pipe-borne Water
By D.Ignatius Roberts, Grand Cape Mount County Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, September 24 (LINA)- Citizens of Robertsport City in Grand Cape Mount County are appealing to the Liberia Water and Sewer
Corporation (LWSC) to reduce the price of purified water in the county.

They said they cannot afford the LD20 per gallon being charged by LWSC and appealed that it be reduced to LD5 per gallon.

The citizens threatened to revert to drinking creek water, if the price of water is not reduced.

According to the Liberia News Agency (LINA) correspondent in Grand Cape Mount County, the citizens made the appeal in Robertsport
Thursday at a one-day Stakeholders’ Dialogue Meeting on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) organized by the Concerned Christian
Community (CCC).

The Mayor of Robertsport City Corporation (RCC), James Kiazulo, said to sell a five-gallon tin of drinking water for 20 LD is to indirectly
deprive the citizens of safe drinking water.

He said since the Liberian civil conflict ended 14 years ago, residents of the area have been drinking water from creeks which is
considered unsafe for drinking.

The management of LWSC could not be reached for comment.
