A GH¢7,600.00 pipe-borne water was recently commissioned at Adesuagya near Nyinahin  in the Atwima Mponua District of the Ashanti Region to alleviate the perennial water problem in the community.

The community which is inhabited by over 150 people, had to rely on a nearby stream for their daily activities, with its attendant effects on their lives and health.

The pipe borne water system, which was provided by the Nyinahin Water and Sanitation Management will enable the inhabitants enjoy treated water after many years of drinking from a nearby stream shared with some cattle.

At a short inauguration ceremony, the Board Chairman of Nyinahin Water and Sanitation Management, Mr. Gabriel Nyame, underscored the need for water saying “water is life” and urged the people in the community to have a good maintenance culture to preserve it.

He added that the provision of clean water to the resident was a big relief to the people who hitherto had to struggle to get water for their daily activities.

Mr. Nyame explained that the water will be sold to the people and advised them to adhere to the payment to ensure its regular flow.

He noted that since electricity is not stable at Nyinahin and its environs, he appealed to well-meaning and resourced individuals and those in the diaspora who hails from the community to aid them in the provision of solar energy to enable the indigenes to get assess to constant portable water.

The  Assembly Member of Nyinahin Adupiri, Baba Yaro  who is also a member of the Nyinahin Water and Sanitation Management was grateful the project has finally been commissioned to enable people in the area enjoy pipe-borne water.

“The district Assembly has evacuated all the refuse dumps to an area at Adesuagya which is close to the stream which my constituents used  as their source of drinking water and other uses”, the Assembly member alleged.

According to him one of the residents have been affected with a water-borne disease called glaucoma as a result of some refuse entering in the stream.

The Akwamuhene of Nyinahin, Nana Oti Boaduah thanked them for the gesture and advised the residents to ensure good maintenance culture.

He expressed the hope that the water supply system will be extended to other communities and all household in the constituency to make life comfortable for his subjects.
