The Minister of Water Resources, Works and Housing, Mr Boniface Abubakar Saddique, who announced this at the Meet-the-Press series in Accra yesterday, said work on six of the borehole at Tantra Hill, Dome and Ashongman would be comÂ¬pleted in two weeks' time, adding that when comÂ¬pleted, water supply to those areas would be considÂ¬erably improved. Other high-yielding boreholes, notably those at Frafraha and Dodowa, he added, were to be mechanised to boost supply to Adenta and its environs. Mr Saddique said for areas such as Teshie, La, La Polyclinic, Osu, Cantonments, Ridge, Nungua and other vulnerable localities, steps were underway install jumbo water containers at identified areas direct delivery through tankers.
