The Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC) will begin to distribute pipe-borne water in central Monrovia within 30 to 60 days, an official of the corporation has disclosed.
According to LWSC Communication Director, Nipson Todd, the newly appointed Managing Director, Moseray Momoh, who has vast experience in the sector, has pledged to ensure that pipe-born water is distributed to every part of central Monrovia.
Todd noted that the issue of water supply is viewed as a major challenge at the LWSC.
“We will do our best to make sure that the LWSC is more accessible to all Liberians by making our presence felt in all communities through the provision of quality water supply to our citizens,” he said Monday on a local radio talk show in Monrovia.
“Regardless of where Liberians reside, it is the responsibility of the LWSC to ensure that water is distributed to all areas,” Todd noted, stressing that “it is not the intention of the LWSC to supply just portion of the Liberian population and forget the rest.”
In a related development, Todd has quoted the Managing Director as saying that he will build the corporation by improving the salaries and benefits of employees and ensuring that they have a conducive working environment through the provision of the basic logistics.
He explained that the Managing Director wants to ensure that in his long-term plan, the corporation will be a great help to the national government “not just as a government corporation, but a contributor to increased revenue generation.”
Todd emphasized that the LWSC can support the national budget and, with time, grow to be independent to support government's national development agenda; culled from LINA.
