Tono (UE) Sept. 25, GNA – Mr Joseph Kofi Adda,
Member of Parliament (MP) for the Navrongo Central Constituency, on Sunday
announced that works on the Tono Water Treatment Plant would commence in
October this year.

He hinted that funds for the project had been
approved by Parliament and it was secured from two main sources including 12
million Euros Grant from ORIO in the Netherlands and 25 million Euros from the
ING Bank of Belgium.

Mr Adda said an advance party including
experts led by the Chief Contractor, Mr Martens Stefaan from the Denys
Constructing Firm was in the country to assess the site and put in the
necessary measures to kick start the project.

Mr Adda made this known during a tour of the
construction site with the team of technicians from the main construction firm
and the Ghana Water Company Limited, the Irrigation Company of Upper Region
(ICOUR) to pick up the final signals for the commencement of the project at
Tono.

The MP urged the people in the area to support
the construction of the treatment plant and said it would provide portable
drinking water to residents in the Region.

Mr Kenneth Ennim, Upper East Regional Chief
Manager at the Ghana Water Company Limited, said when the project was completed
it would house overhead tanks, treatment plants, transmission and distribution
lines and booster stations to serve the 
Navrongo Municipality and its environs, parts of the Kasena-Nankana West
District, Bolgatanga Municipality and the Bongo District.
