Potable Water: New facilities commissioned in Blitta and Agou

(Togo First) - The people of Agou and Blitta (respectively 66km and 266km away from Lome) recently welcomed new drinking water facilities. The facilities, which fall under the government’s water supply system reinforcement and extension project, were handed over last weekend by the Minister responsible for village hydraulics, Damehame Yark.

In Agou, specifically in Gadzepe, the infrastructure consists of two submersible pumps, each capable of delivering 40 cubic meters per hour. The pumps are connected to the Zio River in Kati, where they receive treated water from a treatment plant with a capacity of 1,700 m3/day. A 160 m3 intermediate reservoir was also set up in the locality, along a 12.6 km pumping network, and 62 water fountains. The Ministry of Rural Hydraulics said the facilities cost about CFA13 billion to set up.

In Blitta, specifically in Blitta Gare and Blitta Village, whole potable water supply systems were set up. They include wells, reservoirs, pumping networks, distribution networks, and 62 water fountains.

According to Damehane Yark, the facilities support Togo’s goal of achieving universal access to potable water by 2030. Several other projects are currently underway, with more planned for the coming years, with the primary objective of meeting the challenge of nationwide water coverage.
