The Member of Parliament for Ekumfi Constituency, Hon. Abeiku Crentsil has visited the project site of the ongoing water treatment and supply plant at Essuakyir, in a bid to ascertain the extent of work done on the project.

The 20.4 million Euros project is expected to produce about 3 million gallons of water per-day for about 30 communities within the Ekumfi and Gomoa West constituencies in the Central Region.

He mentioned Essuakyir, Essuehyia, Asaman, Otuam, Gyabenkwaa, Kokodo, Abansi and Abiram among other communities as beneficiaries of the project.

According to the legislator, though the multi million Euro- project is three months ahead of time, plans are far advanced to get the 95 percent completed project operational before March 2014, which happens to be its scheduled period of completion.

Hon. Abeiku Crentsil meanwhile expressed appreciation to the NDC led- administration for initiating the project in the area and further urged contractors of the project, “Denys Engineering Company” to expedite works to complete the project within schedule.

The project co-financed by the Governments of Ghana and Belgium and supervised by the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) when completed will bring a lot of relief to residents in the beneficiary communities.
