The Chief Executive Officer of the Community Water and Sanitation Agency (CWSA), Worlanyo Kwadjo Siabi, has said the agency embarked on a validation exercise to confirm free water bills to all deserving beneficiaries who have supplied free water to various communities.
He noted that the validation was aimed at ensuring transparency in the exercise for the mutual benefit of government and all free water service providers.
This follows President Akuffo-Addo’s directive for the free supply of water to the general public.
This is also an arrangement to ease the suffering of citizens, amidst COVID-19 pandemic.
He said the Ministry of Sanitation and Water Resources, and the agency had communicated to all Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies to request communities to submit their water consumption data during the free water period for validation.
He observed that some of the water providers did not provide data in accordance with the guidelines for the free water, hence the challenges causing the delay.
He assured the general public that doors were opened to engage with Association’s whose members are yet to be identified to address their concerns.
He therefore called for the cooperation of the Association of small towns water supply systems and his outfit to address concerns.
He said that his outfit was poised to deliver free water supply to communities.
