The Commissioner for Water Resources Development, Sir Fidelis Tilije, who kicked off the sensitisation said water testing and certification is mandatory, according to the provisions of the Delta State Urban Water Board Law, 2000.
Leading the throng of directors and expatriates round the premises of various corporate entities in Asaba, the commissioner, represented by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Dr. (Mrs.) Felicia Adun, said that the drive was to minimise water- borne diseases in the state.
Tilije urged Delta State residents to pay the N5000 testing fees already subsidised at 60 per cent by the state government to enable effective and efficient execution by the state.
He said, “The state government cannot afford to ignore the obvious health implications of unwholesome water consumption by its people and the resultant bills our citizens spend on water borne diseases, hence the state wide water testing and analysis programme would help to determine the status of the quality of our water sources, campaign to promote public compliance with the commitment to commence a water testing programme in the state.
