WATER AND SANITATION

Enchi, the Municipal capital enjoys potable water supply from Small Town Water facility. With this facility under-ground water is pumped through pipe to the homes and factories of the people in the town. One of such projects is located at Old Yakase, a community located about Skm from Enchi. Jema and Dadieso have also been selected to benefit from similar facility with funding from the European Union with match up fund from the beneficiary communities

 

Similarly, the District Capital, Enchi, would under the same programme, benefit from the construction of a new facility with an increased capacity to enable it produce sufficient water to meet the ever growing population.

The Assembly through various development interventions such as Village Infrastructure Project, Social Investment Fund, HIPC Relief Benefit and Sefwi Wiawso Catholic Development Assistance has constructed an additional one hundred and ten (110) boreholes, fifty-eight (58) hand-dug wells with pumps throughout the district to increase access to potable water for good health and development.

 

The Assembly has also stepped up efforts at improving sanitation at Enchi by procuring additional refuse containers and a tractor. Provision of household toilets in collaboration with house owners has been undertaken on a pilot stage and would be scaled up to include all major towns to solve the problem of inadequate liquid waste disposal facilities. The Assembly has also provided six (6) Public Toilets in the major towns of the district to cater for travellers and strangers who visit these centres.
