The challenge with potable water in Jirapa and its environs is increasingly being addressed as the Assembly is making plans to drill a total of 49 boreholes across some communities in the district.
The move is part of measures by government and the Assembly to improve the water system in the area, especially in communities that lack access to potable water.
Speaking to Ghanadistricts.com, the District Chief Executive for the area, Bernard K. Puozuing intimated that the water system in Jirapa Township and its surrounding areas has improved tremendously. “Now in Jirapa, water rapidly flows through pipes to serve people daily”, he stressed.

He reiterated that the Assembly was geared towards executing massive infrastructural projects in the area, therefore pledged the Assembly’s readiness to initiate development which would inure to the benefits of the people.
