ABAKALIKI—EBONYI State government yesterday said its mega water treatment plant, Oferekpe water scheme has started delivering over 50,000 cubic meters of water daily to curb the menace of water scarcity in the State.
In a statement issued in Abakaliki, the state Commissioner for Water Resources, Mrs. Euphemia Nwali called on residents of the state “to visit the Ministry for the connection of water from our distribution lines”.
She noted that another mega water scheme in the state, Ezillo Water Treatment Plant was undergoing rehabilitation and will soon begin full operational services to complement the Oferekpe water scheme.
She dismissed a facebook report that there was water scarcity in the state and called on the residents to visit the Ministry of Water Resources for connection of water from the distribution lines to their residences.
“In addition, the ministry is laying new lines to connect other communities outside Abakaliki to ensure that water gets to every nook and cranny of the state”, Nwali stated.
