The LWC boss said the heavy investment of the Governor of Lagos State, His Excellency, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode on provision and delivery of potable Water supply to the residents of the State has started yielding result, with abundant water supply across the State.
He revealed that the water pipe bursts and leakages being experienced are as a result of infringement on LWC water mains and pipes during road constructions and by telecommunications service providers and illegal connection to LWC properties.
MD advised those working on Lagos roads to work with LWC where its facilities will be affected to prevent unnecessary damages being done to water mains and pipes to water wastages. He, therefore, warned the general public to stay away from fully charged water mains to avert loss of lives.
