Environmental accident

Sad: see the source of water for the people of Eshiem a community at the Sekondi Takoradi Metropolis.

Water has not run through the tabs of the people of Eshiem a suburb in Sekondi Takoradi for about a month and half now.

People in the area now compete with animals at an unhygienic environment for water.

Assemblyman in the area,Hon. Arthur said he is doing everything possible to get water for his people.

The problem is as a result of an ongoing works at inchaban Nkwanta, they have destroyed all the pipelines to our community hence the water shortage the Assemblyman disclosed.

The Community,now drink from Anankore river which they say has been contaminated since it contains some industrial waste.

We drink from the Anankore river which contains an industrial waste,all the waste from the companies here discharged their liquid waste into the Anankore river so u can imagine the water we are using but we don't have a choice Maa Adwoa a resident told our reporter Adesi Kumi.

The Assemblyman also said they are in talks with the leadership of the Ghana Water Company to provide them with what he called tanker water pending the fixing of their pipelines.

The people now buy pure water for their house chores and use the Anankore river for washing and bathing ,some even drink it the Assembly man added.

Eshiem is located at the industrial enclave of the Sekondi Metropolis near Kojokurom in the Western Region.

We find ourselves in the mist of big industries here but hardly do we benefit from them it's so sad,how much does it cost if they come together and construct a borehole for us Ekow Marfo told our reporter.

See pictures of their source of water.
