Following news reports of serious water crisis in the Adaklu Waya Community, a new borehole project, has been started for the community.

The project being made possible by a group calling itself Friends of JM, costs between GH¢10,000 and GH¢12000.

Leader of the group speaking to Global News, says the initiative was in response to the plight of the people in the community, who were being
adversely affected as a result of the unavailability of potable water.

The situation gets worse during the dry season.

The Member of Parliament (MP) and the District assembly, say they are working hard to provide the least source of potable water to the people of Adaklu and are awaiting the completion of the biggest water project in the area.

This was echoed by the deputy Volta Regional Minister, Francis Ganyaglo, during a recent visit to Adaklu Waya.

Queen mother for the area, Mama Dzankuya, says the two other boreholes in the area, are salty and as such, not suitable for use.

She is hopeful that, the other challenges facing the community, including poor state of roads in the town, are tackled.

In the same vein, students of the Adaklu Senior High School (SHS), have had cause to worry about the unavailability of potable water in the area.

The students mostly borders, have had to depend on The River Tordze for use. Water fetched from the river is used for bathing and washing, a situation which has resulted in serious health problems for them.

The situation is also affecting academic work, as students spend most of their time taking trips o the riverside in order to fetch water.

A Geography Tutor of the school speaking to Kuul News, says School authorities, were sometimes forced to engage the services of water distributing outlets, who transport huge volumes of water from outside the town for the students at a cost.

He was, however, hopeful that this latest intervention will prove helpful to the water needs of the students.
