Corporation transmits 25,000 cubic metre water to Enugu
The administration of Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi said the recent rehabilitation of facilities at Ajalli and Oji River Water Treatment Schemes has led to a remarkable improvement in the daily supply of water to Enugu metropolis and its environs.
A status report by Managing Director, Enugu State Water Corporation, Engr. Chidozie Eze, said “Ajalli and Oji water schemes presently produce 10,000 cubic metre and15, 000 cubic metre daily.”
Eze revealed that prior to assumption of office by present administration, water supply in Enugu metropolis and Nsukka urban were comatose, with Oji and Ajalli water schemes almost at the verge of collapse.
The managing director maintained that contrary to erroneous impression being peddled that there is no water in Enugu; there has been increased water production and distribution to residents.
He further stated that because of persistent problem of power supply from Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC), the state government embarked on the construction of a dedicated power line linking Ajalli scheme to Oji Sub-station.
