CWSA provides potable water for more communities

Mr. Francis Yaw Gark, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Community Water and Sanitation Agency (CWSA),   says the agency has provided potable water to about 50 percent of the country and plans to increase supply to more communities country-wide.

Mr. Gark has also appealed to Mr. Mark Woyongo, the Upper East Regional Minister, to help CWSA acquire land for the construction of a regional office complex to enhance water delivery in the region.

 This was contained in a statement issued in Bolgatanga and signed by Mr. Abdul-Khassim Medjida, the Upper East Regional Public Relations Officer of CWSA, after members of the CWSA board had paid a courtesy call on Mr. Woyongo, as part of a nation-wide tour of CWSA installations in the various districts.

 Mr. Woyongo appealed to the management of CWSA to diversify its operation to include small irrigation schemes to enhance dry season gardening and also urged them to give priority to the region in the provision of more bore holes to improve the region’s water delivery.
