USAID Begins Hydro Project In Bong

By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, May 29 (LINA) - The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has kicked off the construction of a one megawatt hydro plant in Bong County.

The hydro plant is being constructed on the Mein River at the Kpatawee waterfall in Suakoko District.

Bong County Assistant Superintendent for Development Anthony Sheriff told the Liberian News Agency that the facility when constructed will supply electricity to Cuttington University, Phebe Hospital and the Central Agricultural Research Institute.

Other communities to benefit from the Kpatawee Hydro plant include Sinyea, Kpleto Town 1 and 2, Suakoko City and Phebe Airstrip community, among others.

Sheriff said the city of Gbarnga is not captured under the current arrangement but may benefit in the near future.

The project, which is the first of its kind in Bong County, will cost over US$10 million.

Under the arrangement, the construction will last for one year while USAID will manage the facility for another year before turning it over to the shareholders.
