The companies are Water and Sanitation for Urban Poor (WSUP) and Zoomlion who under the collaboration presented four motorbikes to the Assembly to enhance the monitoring activities of environmental health.


Mr Sam Atukwei Quaye said this at the first ordinary meeting of the first session of the fourth assembly of the Ga West.

He said the partnership would help provide 80,000 residents living in compound houses with household toilets.

“The initiative is receiving funding boost from HFC Boafo, but unfortunately this component is not receiving the patronage anticipated by the project and I will appeal to honorable members to spearhead the campaign to get landlords to build toilets in their homes to make our communities defaecation-free areas,” he said.

Mr Quaye said the Assembly has organized a series of “Bye-law lunches,” a training session with Environmental Health Officers to equip them with the needed skills to interpret and apply the bye-laws in the course of their duties.

Two projects under the Ghana-Netherlands WASH Programme would help address liquid waste collection; management and transportation with the establishment of of a liquid waste treatment plant that would produce compost, biogas, electricity, water for agriculture or fish farming in the municipality, he said.

Mr Quaye said the Assembly will continue to source for funding for the provision of Small Town Water Systems to increase the water coverage in the municipality to an appreciable level.
