The more we put hard surfaces within this area, the more we increase the water collection and runoff that results in flash floods and extreme flooding.
This morning, I was heartbroken to see the Fiesta Royale traffic light-flooded. Soon, the intensity of the runoff will carry cars and humans away.
Let no man think of touching the Achimota Forest. It will be very unwise to do so. We should rather think of properly increasing the vegetative cover in there. More tress, shrubs, grass.
We also need to immediately begin the Akwapim range vegetation restoration to reduce the incidents of runoff, weathering, and erosion and their effect on the city.
Please plant a tree today. Cover your compounds with grass or something which will prevent water collection and runoff.
