The Leasing and Concession Follow-up Committee for Potable Water in Urban and Peri-urban Centres met in Yaounde on July 1, 2016.

The management of the Cameroon Water Utilities Corporation, CAMWATER, says the Akomnyada Water Treatment Plant in the Nyong and So'o Division of the Centre Region under extension, with additional 35,000 cubic metres per day, will soon swing into full action.

CAMWATER's General Manager, Alphonse Roger Ondoa Akoa without stating, said that all was almost ready for the plant to be functional. Many dates have been given for the take-off of the Akomnyada Water Treatment Plant, but management says the project implementation has been complex like many others.

The problem has been identified and experts from Geofor are already in the field to fill the holes which, according to Alphonse Roger Ondoa Akoa, stem from the difficulty to make water from the Nyong River drinkable.

The treatment exercise is ongoing, with CAMWATER officials stressing that inhabitants of the city of Yaounde will witness an increase in water supply in the next two weeks.

The General Manager of CAMWATER was speaking on the sidelines of the 22nd and 28th Concessions and Leasing Follow-up Committee for Potable Water Supply Projects in Urban and Peri-urban Centres in Yaounde on July 1, 2016.

The Minister of Water and Energy, Basile Atangana Kouna, Chairperson of the Committee, disclosed that government was working on reinstating financial equilibrium to the sector.

The move comes eight years into the existence of the committee, with Water and Energy Minister, acknowledging the dividends of Public Private Partnership in the mobilisation of resources for the refurbishment of infrastructure.

Over 10 projects are being implemented in some cities within the framework of the project that covers over 106 urban and peri-urban centres.

Four of the 11 boreholes earmarked for execution in the Littoral Region are already in service (additional 20,000 cubic metres per day), the Deputy General Manager of CAMWATER, Felix Ngompa, revealed.

Over 40 towns are currently witnessing the implementation of projects within the framework and committee members state that boreholes will soon go operational in towns like Bafoussam, Bamenda, Bangante, Foumban, Kribi, Sangmelima, amongst others.
