Works will soon begin to improve access to drinking water in parts of Lomé

(Togo First) - In Lomé, the following districts will soon enjoy a better access to drinking water: Bè, Nyékonakpoè, Kodjoviakopé, Kégué, Hédzranawoé. 

The related works, which are estimated to cost XOF700 million, are set to commence in the second half of this month and be completed over six months. In effect, they will involve drilling deep boreholes that will supply water to three water towers. 

According to the ministry of water, this project lines up with various social measures undertaken by public policies to ease the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the Togolese people. Examples of such measures include making water free for the poorest, cutting down the cost in getting access to water, and free access to water at public standpipes. 

Let’s recall that from 2005 to 2009, the rate of access to drinking water has soared considerably in Togo, as a result of many programs and projects initiated in this framework.
