The Kebbi Government has assured residents of the state of regular potable water supply.
The General Manager of the Kebbi State Water Board, Alhaji Mahmoud Gwandu, gave the assurance while monitoring the off-loading of trucks laden with aluminium sulphate and hydrated lime in Birnin Kebbi on Thursday.
He said that a total of 11 trucks with aluminium sulphate, hydrated lime and chlorine were expected in the state.
“We have so far gotten four trucks of chemicals and we are expecting the remaining seven to arrive soon,” he said.
Gwandu said the chemicals would be used to treat water before use by residents, adding that the board was committed to providing the public with safe drinking water.
He commended the state government for its commitment to providing residents with basic social amenities that would improve their socio -economic wellbeing.
The general manager, however, appealed to residents to ensure maintenance of facilities provided for them.
He also called on them to report any damage to pipelines to the appropriate authority for necessary action.
The 220 metric tonnes of aluminium sulphate, 110 metric tonnes of hydrated lime and 200 drums of HTS chlorine would be put to use in the next four months in the state.
