New Krofrom Electoral Area gets fourth mechanised borehole

Constituents of the New Krofrom Electoral Area in the Kumasi Metropolis have benefitted from the fourth mechanised borehole to be installed by the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) since 2009.

It was funded under the District Assembly Common Fund (DACF) at a cost of GH¢45,000.

The Assembly Member for the electoral area, Patrick Kwame Frimpong, said at the  commissioning of the facility last week Thursday, that it would complement water supply in the  area, which is close to the main distribution point of the Ghana Water Company Limited, and which operations might be affected by the construction of the Suame Interchange.

He said in case of a disruption in water supply because of the commencement of the said interchange project, the mechanised borehole, together with the three existing ones, would be handy to provide the needed relief.

Patrick Frimpong, who is also the Presiding Member of the KMA, gave an assurance that the facility would be maintained as the previous ones, because since they were installed years back, there had not been any cause for break downs, let alone maintenance.

In another development, the KMA has also inaugurated a major drain at Yenyawoso, a suburb of Kumasi.

It was also funded under the DACF at a GH¢101,700, and is designed to reduce flooding in the area.

The Presiding Member cautioned the residents against throwing refuse into the drains to avoid choking the flow of water.
