Why Shortage of Water In Lagos May Last 2016


In mitigating the water shortages experienced by many residents, the Lagos State Water Corporation, LSWC, said it has begun work on the Adiyan Phase II Waterworks Project, which at completion in 2016 would add 70 million to the existing 210 million gallons produced daily. LSWC Group Managing Director, Shayo Holloway, told the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, that population rise accounts for the deficit in water supply to residents.

Holloway explained that “the total demand for water is 540million gallons per day, and that the corporation has the capacity of 210million gallons per day leaving a deficit of 300 million gallons.” He assured that the corporation was working assiduously to overcoming the challenge. Holloway hinted of another water works scheme to be located in Badagry, all in the government’s effort to deliver portable water.
