Work will soon commence on the construction of ten (10) new boreholes in the Afram Plains South Constituency, the Member of Parliament, Joseph Appiah Boateng has disclosed.

The project earmarked for some selected communities including Tiase, Agyata, Kwamenakwo, Foso, Forifori, Boakyekrom and few others is in line with the MPs quest to improve potable in the constituency.

Presently, Mr. Appiah Boateng noted that some of these communities do not have any suitable good drinking water. Residents are dependent on dams and streams for water which they do not even boil in some cases. The situation he noted raises a lot of concern and he cannot sit by a watch the situation to degenerate.

He said preparations are underway to actualize these drillings. He however called on residents who are privileged to have been provided with boreholes or any other form of good drinking water to handle them carefully to avoid getting back to the old state of depending on rivers and dams.
