About 30,000 household toilets will be provided for people with low income within the Kumasi Metropolis in the Ashanti Region.
The project would be executed under the Greater Kumasi Sanitation and Water Project.
It aimed at ensuring increased access to improved toilet facilities. About 5,000 households would be connected to potable water supply.
Madam Cecilia Abena Dapaah, Minister for Sanitation and Water Resources, announced at a one day workshop on the Greater Kumasi Sanitation and Water Project for journalists in Kumasi.
The project is aimed at increasing access to sanitation services in low income areas.
It would also support the expansion of the water distribution network to provide water for an estimated 150,000 people, improve institutional and technical assistance to some stakeholders.
Madam Dapaah said that the facilities would be maintain, enhance and increase as population increases, adding that the Owabi Dam would be dredged soon to improve water supply in Kumasi.
The government, she noted, was providing pragmatic measures to find a lasting solution to the water and sanitation problem in Kumasi.
Mr George Asiedu, Project Coordinator, said a steering committee had been established to ensure sustainability of the project.
