KETU S: Drains to be constructed to end flooding
|Drainage system|| |
The government in collaboration with hydrologists are planning for the construction of new drainages to forestall the constant flooding in most parts of the Ketu South Constituency.
Hydrologists have described most parts of the constituency expecially the Denu, Adina and Agbozume as sitting in a ‘bowl’, which means once water, enters, it cannot come out.
The Minister of Interior, W. K. Aboah made this known on the floor of Parliament while answering a question posed by the MP for Ketu South, Alfred Zigah on what plans the Ministry has done to address the constant flooding in the constituency.
According the minister, hydrologists have advised that there is the need for the construction of a new drainage system to carry water out of the Keta lagoon.
This drainage system he noted when completed will also go a long way to solve similar problems in the Aflao area of Viese, Hatsoukope and Avoeme.
He added that as a short-term measure the Ketu South District Asembly has been tasked to design and construct smaller drains that will improve the drainage in the area.
