A number of boreholes in about 27 communities in the Afram Plains South Constituency in the Eastern Region have been fixed.

Mr. Joseph Appiah Boateng, Member of Parliament for the Afram Plain South Constituency said residents were faced with serious challenges with potable water even though a number of boreholes were drilled for the communities most of which got damaged and could not serve their intended purpose. He therefore saw the need to intervene by repairing these broken boreholes and fixing pipes on those which do not have.

Some of these areas, according to the MP included Koranteng, Krachi, Asenesu, Nyamebekyere, Nsogyaso, among others.

Honourable Boateng noted that the health implications of people relying on streams and other unwholesome sources for water would be very devastating including affecting their economic undertakings, hence more efforts needed to be made to ensure that every community is provided with potable water.

He is hopeful government interventions will see more communities enjoying good drinking water.
