URGENT ACTION NEEDED: ADDRESSING THE SEWAGE CRISIS IN CENTRAL MONROVIA

Date:

The ongoing issue of sewage leaking into the streets of Central Monrovia is a matter of grave concern that demands immediate attention. The Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC), under the leadership of MO Ali, must prioritize finding a permanent solution to this persistent problem. The potential health risks posed by the contamination of water sources cannot be ignored.

The residents and business owners of Central Monrovia have every reason to be alarmed. The presence of sewage in the streets not only creates an unsanitary environment but also poses a significant threat to public health. Waterborne diseases such as cholera, typhoid, and dysentery thrive in such conditions, and the longer this issue remains unaddressed, the higher the risk of an outbreak.

The LWSC has a responsibility to ensure that the city’s infrastructure is capable of supporting its population. The recurrent leaks indicate systemic issues within the sewage system that require comprehensive and long-term solutions. Quick fixes and temporary measures are no longer sufficient. It is imperative that the LWSC conducts a thorough assessment of the sewage network, identifies the root causes of the leaks, and implements robust repair and maintenance strategies.

Furthermore, the LWSC must engage with the community to keep them informed about the steps being taken to resolve this issue. Transparent communication and active involvement of residents and business owners in the solution process can help restore trust and cooperation.

Inaction or delay in addressing this crisis will only exacerbate the problem, leading to severe health consequences and economic setbacks for the community. The LWSC must take decisive action to upgrade and maintain the sewage system, ensuring that such leaks do not recur.

The people of Central Monrovia deserve to live and work in a safe and healthy environment. It is time for the LWSC, led by MO Ali, to step up and fulfill its duty to protect public health and well-being. A permanent solution to the sewage problem is not just necessary; it is urgent. The health and future of Central Monrovia depend on it.
