Mr Samuel Yaw Adusei, the Deputy Minister for Water Resources, Works & Housing, has undertaken an inspection of the rehabilitation and water supply expansion works at Akim Oda.

The project, under the construction of ARDA-GRUP Limited, is to improve water supply at Akim Oda and its environs in the Birim Central Municipality.

Mr Adusei, in an interview with the Ghana New Agency, said in September 2013 government contracted ARDA-GRUP to improve water supply in Akim Oda, Akwatia and Winneba at the cost of 165 million dollars.

“This is to show government’s commitment to promoting easy access to safe drinking water to the people,” Mr. Adusei said.

During the inspection, it was observed that the 1.3 million-gallon underground water reservoir located at Akim Asene and the 33.7 kilometre transmission pipelines from Oda, Asene to Akwatia were at the completion levels.

Mr Owusu Frempong Boadu, the Birim Central Municipal Co-ordinating Director, who led the Minister and his entourage, expressed contentment with the extent of the work done so far.

Mr Bulent Osturk, the General Manager of ARDA-GRUP Limited, said by the end of April 2016, the inadequate water supply that prevails in the area would be solved.
