Liberia Water & Sewer Corporation (LWSC) in 2014

Posted on

first_imgIn 2014 the Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC) encountered its share of challenges and constraints due primarily to the deadly Ebola virus and some funding gaps.One major challenge faced by LWSC and the bane of most large and small entities throughout the nation is the cost of power supply needed to operate. In the case of LWSC, the management relies on one major power supply source, a 1700 kilowatt diesel generator that consumes enormous fuel oil to the detriment of the Corporation.Not only is the cost of fuel oil for a large scale operation like LWSC prohibitive, but the maintenance cost on its generator is equally considerable.The Corporation continued to encounter technical breakdowns during 2014 thus hindering the pumping of safe drinking water into Monrovia and its environs.The popular slogan ‘Big Water Today and Small Water Tomorrow’ is used by LWSC customers with an equal mix of approval and dissatisfaction as the system made some significant strides and stumbles in the provision of safe drinking in some critical parts of MonroviaLWSC undertook several water development projects in urban Monrovia and some rural parts of Liberia signifying that the Liberian Government has some degree of confidence in the current management of LWSC, well-placed sources in the Corporation told the Daily Observer. These sources say plans are underway to ensure that before end of the year 2015 an additional generating unit will be installed in order to enhance the provision of safe drinking water to Monrovia and its environs. LWSC executives told the Daily Observer that the funds for the procurement will be provided by the Liberian Government.Such confidence was manifested during the year under review when the Liberian Government provided funds to rehabilitate the 112 damaged kiosks (hand pumps) in various communities and 43 public latrines, reflecting a sixty percent increase in access to safe drinking water in deprived communities in Monrovia.The renovated latrines were turned over last year to the General Services Agency (GSA).Another success story of the LWSC was its improved billing and customer service which have provided a significant increase in cash flow, permitting the Corporation to utilize funds provided through government budget to be utilized for capital expenditure.Meanwhile the LWSC’s Board of Directors has also continued to monitor and provide substantive oversight of Liberia’s prime water agency.A heightened level of government confidence and financial reporting have led other stakeholders such as United States Agency for International Development (USAID), African Development Bank (AfDB) and the World Bank to show support for the management of LWSC.With regard to outstation facilities, three city water projects are being funded by USAID under the Liberia Municipal Water Project (LMWP). A 12 hour regular water supply has been restored to Kakata City in Margibi County and improved access via a two-kilometer pipeline for services to Robertsport in Grand Cape Mount County is to be completed within the next two weeks.Technical officials of the LWSC also disclosed that the subsequent phase in the next 18 months is to cover the rest of Robertsport with Voinjama City and Sanniquellie City scheduled for 18 to 24 months hence.However, under the AfDB project for Zwedru, Kakata and Buchanan Cities, the sanitation works commenced but were suspended due to the outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus disease in the country.Meanwhile Monrovia, which comprises a significant portion of the nation’s population, continues to experience an insufficient supply of safe drinking water.Under a 90-day program it is planned that by the end of March 2015, central Monrovia should have increased access to the same level of services now being experienced by the rural parts of Monrovia and its environs.The 90 day action plan which was previously underway but stalled due to funding constraints, will improve water access in the areas of Randall, Broad, Carey, Ashmun and Newport streets, Mamba Point as well as Clara Town.When the renovation works for the Water Treatment Plant at White Plains have been tendered in early 2015 and are completed within 12 months, the citizens and residents of Monrovia will enjoy a three hundred percent increase in potable water, according to LWSC management.Other ChallengesIn 2014 LWSC continued to be challenged with limited sewer services, inadequate equipment including de-slugging trucks on one hand and beleaguered on the other by citizens’ apathy, failure to report damages to distribution lines and water theft.In spite of these perennial setbacks, water supply to Monrovia increased from four million gallons per day to six million gallons and 12 hours pumping schedule during the year under review, according to top LWSC’s officialsThe officials also explained that, for the second year in a row, its customers have come to expect the delivery of water as a norm, rather than an exception.The Managing Director of LWSC, Mr. Charles B. Allen, during an interview with this newspaper, assured Liberians, foreign residents and customers that the greater Monrovia will in the near future be connected to the system’s water delivery services in homes and business entities.He disclosed that construction work has resumed on the 36 inch pipeline from the White Plains Plant in Careyburg to several parts of central Monrovia intended to enhance the smooth delivery of safe drinking water.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Unmarked grave still to be located – Crime Chief

Posted on

first_imgDisappearance of 6-year-oldA father has confessed that he murdered and buried his six-year-old son two years ago at Richmond Hill in the Essequibo river island of Leguan, Region 3; and the Police were up to Saturday evening combing the area for the unmarked grave.During a counselling session with a social worker on December 6, Ewart Adolphus confessed to murdering his son, Daniel Adolphus, and burying his body in an unmarked grave.Being a person who suffers from mental complications, Ewart Adolphus was being counselled after a magistrate had recommended that he undergo a psychiatric evaluation when he made the confession.Father, Ewart AdolphusHe had told Police that in 2016 he was charged for attempting to slit his son’s throat, but the matter was dismissed following an evaluation. Contacted on Saturday afternoon, Crime Chief Paul Williams told Guyana Times that a team of investigators had travelled to Leguan on Saturday to search for the unmarked grave of Daniel Adolphus. He noted that up to late Saturday afternoon the Police were still combing the Richmond Hill area, and he said the search will continue. The search, he noted, is based on information being given to the Police by the father of the missing child.“We are not sure if he is giving the correct information, but we are not taking chances, and as such, we will search the area,” the Crime Chief disclosed.The Crime Chief said the mentally ill man told the social worker what he had done because he said his conscience was “killing” him. While the Crime Chief did not divulge any information on how the man might have committed the act, Guyana Times understands that he might have slit the child’s throat.The child mysteriously disappeared in December 2015, and has since not been seen or heard from. At the time of his disappearance, he had been at home with his father, since his mother had travelled to Georgetown with her new-born baby to seek medical attention.Based on reports, on the night of December 2, 2015, the father claimed he woke up around midnight and saw the television on, the door ajar, and his son missing from home. Initially, he raised an alarm and a search party was launched, but the child was not found even after several days.There were reports that the child might have been kidnapped, but the family never received a telephone call from anyone demanding a ransom for his safe return. The Police had reportedly followed all possible leads, but had come up empty-handed.Ewart Adolphus was, in 2010, charged for committing two robberies while being armed with a gun. He was accused of relieving two people of more than $2 million. He had reportedly carried out the crime with the help of an accomplice.last_img read more

Vieira could succeed me at Arsenal -Wenger

Posted on

first_img0Shares0000When asked if he could see Vieira succeeding him, Wenger replied: “He works in the moment in New York and he works for Man City. He’s a guy who has the potential one day, yes.LONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 20 – Arsene Wenger says former Arsenal midfielder Patrick Vieira “has the potential” to succeed him as manager.Vieira won three Premier League titles under Wenger and is now in third season as manager of New York City FC following a spell in charge of youth development at Manchester City. When asked if he could see Vieira succeeding him, Wenger replied: “He works in the moment in New York and he works for Man City. He’s a guy who has the potential one day, yes.“I’ve followed his managerial career. I think he does very well but overall, this Premier League is special. You have to come in and there are plenty of former players who played here who have potential, the intelligence and knowledge to do it.”Meanwhile, Wenger has called for safe standing at football matches in England and says the Premier League needs to be less conservative and stop waiting for someone else to take the lead.Earlier this month, sports minister Tracey Crouch turned down a proposal from West Brom to introduce safe standing in the Smethwick End at The Hawthorns for both home and away fans next season.The Premier League say they ‘understand and appreciate’ why Crouch would require more evidence before considering a change of policy.“The atmosphere is much better when people stand,” said Wenger. “The closer you are to the position of the player, the more supportive you are.“Imagine if people were lying in bed watching a game; they could fall asleep sometimes. It is better they stand up.“It’s a tradition of English football as well. Overall it is much better. I can understand the safety reasons but if the safety is right it has my 100 per cent backing.”He added: “At the moment, I would say that the Premier League is very conservative in all its decision-making. You can see that with VAR and you see it as well with standing.“I’m a bit more [understanding] with standing because you can raise government rules or safety rules, than with VAR. Personally I’m in favour of it.“The Premier League has been created by people who wanted to be in front of everybody else. At the moment we look a little more like we look first at what happens everywhere else, then if it goes well we follow it.“But it’s a bit more of a conservative approach. That’s the tendency when you are successful, not to take many risks anymore and let’s continue like that.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

The best winning streaks in Europe this season REVEALED!

Posted on

first_img 3 3 Joint third: With eight consecutive wins in the Premier League, Bundesliga, Serie A and Ligue 1 respectively, Arsenal, Bayern Munich, Lazio and Marseille can boast the third longest winning streaks in Europe’s top 10 leagues in the 2014/15 season. Click the arrow above, right, to find out which club has the second best run of league wins this season! – Arsenal’s eight-game winning streak in the Premier League came to an end last weekend with a 0-0 draw against Chelsea, scuppering Gunners hopes of matching their Premier League record run of consecutive victories, set in 2002. Lazio’s eight game run lifted the club from sixth to second in Serie A, coming to an end with defeat against champions-elect Juventus on 18 April, but they are currently a point clear of third-placed city rivals Roma. Marseille won eight games in a row early on to lead Ligue 1, but relinquished top spot early in 2015 and are now on a run of four consecutive defeats, dropping them to fifth and leaving Champions League football a fading possibility. Only Bayern out of this quartet sit top of their league, with Pep Guardiola’s team already crowned champions. As are the next team in our list – click right to find out who they are! In second place, with 11 straight Eredivisie wins, it’s Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven, who won 11 on the bounce to help secure their first Eredivisie title in six years. Click the arrow above, right, to see which club has enjoyed the best sequence of victories in Europe’s top 10 leagues this season – Winning their 22nd Eredivisie title this season, the Red and Whites went three months unbeaten, until their 11-game winning streak came to an end with a 3-1 defeat to second placed Ajax. Still, they won the division comfortably! Only the top 10 leagues in Europe included, as per UEFA’s national co-efficient rankings.All statistics correct on 28 April 2015. In first place, it’s Real Madrid, who notched up 12 Liga wins in a row between September and December 2014 – From their 8-2 win away to Deportivo La Coruna on 20 September to a 4-1 win at Almeria on 12 December, Carlo Ancelotti’s side couldn’t stop winning in the Spanish top flight. This spell included a 3-1 Clasico victory over Barcelona at the Bernabeu and in those 12 consecutive league games, Los Blancos scored a whopping 68 goals. At time of writing, though, they trail Barcelona by two points with five games to go, thanks to the Catalans winning 14 of their last 16 league games, while Real lost two and drew one of four games in March. Madrid are now on a run of five consecutive Liga victories and will probably need to extend that run to 10 if they are to overhaul Barca. 3last_img read more
