On July 22nd, the MCE with her entourage performed a sod cutting ceremony for the drilling and mechanization of 10 no boreholes at different locations in Asante Akim Central Municipality. The boreholes can be found at Odumasi Extension, Odumasi Market, Konongo Market, Konongo Lorry Station, Patriensa Colas, Adumkrom, Kyekyewere Town Centre, Bimma, Obenimase and Dwease. The project being funded from both District Development Fund (DDF) and Internally Generated Fund (IGF) is expected to be completed in 6 months.

The aim of this project was to address the issue of inadequate access to portable water in most communities in the Municipality. This, the chiefs of the communities applauded the Assembly for the effort put in place to solve this challenge in the Municipality and further, charged the contractors (Apamo Enterprise and Bobmah Company Limited) to complete the project within the speculated timeframe as per the contract and also, deliver to expectation.
