MR Clement Bugase, the Chief Executive Officer of the Community Water and Sanitation Agency (CWSA), has urged the management teams of the system, to ensure that road contractors whose works destroy water pipelines pay for their replacement.
Mr Bugase, who was on a tour of CSWA facilities in the Eastern Region, with the other members of the board, tasked the CWSA management teams to seek the support of the various district assemblies to collect water tariffs from public institutions.
He explained that all public institutions were supposed to budget for their utility bills and pay for them as the various teams also had to pay for other utility bills such as electricity.
The chairman of the Board of Directors of the CWSA, Nana Danso Agyei Ababio, commended the Birim North District CWSA management team for its efficient management of the water system in the district.
He said the district could be ahead of other districts in the country because more than 74 per cent of its population was being reached with potable water.
The board had earlier visited Asesewa and Akateng in the region to interact with the CWSA management teams as part of the two-day visit.
Nana Ababio advised the management teams to abide by laws on water and sanitation, and invest in sanitation to help improve sanitation in their communities.
