Tukur Amadi, District Manager, Katsina State Water Board, said on Wednesday that the board has raised daily water supply to Daura to 1.2 million liters.
Mr Amadi said in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Daura that the increase in water supply to the town was due to the drilling and installation of additional pumping facilities by the board.
According to him, the board is now pumping water to more areas in the town including Kururrubai, Dunu, Rahamawa, Cadi and Kofar Baru.
The district manager assured that very soon the whole town would be getting uninterrupted water supply, adding “we are presently installing the pumps to increase the quantity of the commodity and ensure consumption of safe and clean water.”
Mr Amadi disclosed that the board was liaising with the state road maintenance agency for the use of its equipment to fast track the laying of new water pipes in the town.
He urged water consumers in Daura to reciprocate the gesture by settling their monthly water bills to enable the board continue to serve them better.
The district manager commended the state Commissioner for Water Resources, Alhaji Salisu Dandume for ensuring that the district office of the water board operate in full capacity.
NAN reports that the federal government recently handed over to the Katsina State Government the completed Sabke multi purpose Dam in Maiadua Local Government Area, meant to further boost potable water supply and agriculture activities in Daura and other parts of the state.
