0 316

The Inspector General at the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Josephine Davis, on Saturday, June 6, 2020 dedicated several Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC) constructed kiosks on Peace Island, Congo Town, which will serve 30, 000 residents with safe-drinking water.

   Davis said the pipe-borne water facilities will be sustained by the Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC) through the constant flow of safe-drinking water.

 “We are grateful to President Goerge M. Weah for his numerous assistance he continues to give to the Liberian people, ranging from water and health to education and infrastructure,” IG Davis said.

She said the dedication of the water facilities will definitely turn the story around for the residents of Peace Island, who used to fetch water from wells that are unsafe for drinking purposes.

She assured the residents of district#10, Montserrado County, that a similar project will be replicated in other communities across the district to stop the people from drinking unsafe water.

Inspector General Davis urged residents of Peace Island to take ownership of the facilities, and thanked President Weah for the projects, which are bringing safe drinking water to the door steps of the people.

Also speaking, LWSC Managing Director, Duannah Kamara, disclosed that the water facilities will be constructed in nearly all communities in Montserrado County, noting that the residents of Peace Island will use the water facilities for three months without paying bills.

Kamara warned the residents against looting and destroying the facilities because it is the hard-earned money of the government.

Kamara said the occasion is a clear demonstration of the Weah administration’s commitment to providing safe-drinking water for the people of Monrovia.

This event, he said, marks another milestone toward the realization of the compact objective that supports the Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development (PAPD).

  He told them that maintenance of the facilities must be the primary concern of the residents of Peace Island.

 Kamara said plans are being worked out to have similar modern water facilities constructed in other counties in the country.

   “The dedication of the water facilities has now become a challenge for us Liberian, to maintain them and ensure they are used for the intended purpose,” the LWSC Managing Director asserted.
