ONAS aims to involve local areas in waste water management in Senegal
23 November 2009
ONAS, the Senegal National Office of Cleansing and Drainage, is seeking to establish a partnership arrangement with the municipalities in the region of Dakar in order to establish an association for more effective management of waste water.
“The poor state of the network, the discharge of solid waste, and of products derived from hydrocarbons are the cause of blockages and overflows of waste water which are regularly encountered in the districts of the city”, ONAS stated in a press release.
The organization hopes in this way to resolve these problems at source, by approaching the local areas directly.
On the occasion of the inauguration on 15 November of the water processing facility at Thiès, Babacar Ndao, Director General of ONAS, the Senegal National Office of Cleansing and Drainage, spoke of his desire to create a complete system for cleansing and drainage across the whole of the territory, APS reports.
“We are working towards this, and we shall make sure that other regions outside Thiès can also benefit from this facility.”<br/>
