SANNIQUELLIE, May 31 (LINA) - Superintendent Fong G. Zuagele has called on residents of Sanniquellie, Nimba County to protect, preserve, and cherish the ongoing installation of facilities and supply of safe drinking water in the city of over 11,000 dwellers.
“It is not because we have access to water at low cost, but what matters is our willingness to protect and maintain the facility being installed by government and partners,” he added.
Fong made the statement recently at the JR Community in Sanniquellie, when the Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC) and the United States Agency For International Development (USAID) broke grounds for the reconstruction of the damaged water processing facility in the city.
He indicated that the funds used came from the US tax payers and must not be classified as free money to misuse, adding, “You and I are the owners of those facilities and must take good care of them.”
The water transmission station in Sanniquellie was constructed in 1979 with funds provided by USAID, targeting 9,500 residents at that time, but was damaged during the Liberian civil crisis that started in 1990.
The Nimba Superintendent also called on parents to warn their kids and youth to obey procedure set for the safe use the facility across the city.
