Coastal Defense Project In Bassa Resumes In October
By Johnson Bobby Liway, LINA Grand Bassa County Correspondent

BUCHANAN, October 5 (LINA) – The Breakwater Revetment Pilot Project, a project being executed under the supervision of the Ministry of Lands, Mines and Energy (LME) will recommence work at the Buchanan Coastal Defense Force this October.

Making the disclosure to the Liberia News Agency (LINA) in Buchanan over the weekend, Lands, Mines and Energy Director of Hydrological Service Jefferson Wylie said the project came to a halt as a result of  the Ebola outbreak.

Wylie who put the total cost of the project at US$ 1.9 million, said 95 percent of the amount will go towards procuring rocks such as boulders, cold stones and filter medium, while the balance 5 percent will goe towards the renting of equipment, fuel and maintenance of the
technical team.

He disclosed that of the total 600 meter shoreline that needs to be protected, the project has covered 500 meters in the first phase,

while the balance 100 meters will be done during this season. Wylie noted that the Breakwater Revetment Pilot Project which is a Liberian indigenous technology, is the first of its kind to be built in Liberia and it has since sustained the coastline for two years.

He told LINA that financiers of the project include the Government of Liberia (GOL), the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the international non-governmental organization Global Environment Facility (GEF).
