PROVISION OF POTABLE DRINKING WATER

Written by
  • Apart from supplying her employees with potable treated drinking water, Samartex extends provision of free treated pipe borne water to inhabitants of communities within Samreboi like; Nsuakyir, Aboifie and Bekwai.
  • The total monthly supply of water to these communities amounts to 36,000m3 with a total chemical cost of approximately, GH₵315,000 for treatment annually
  • Samartex has gone further to install 7 additional Boreholes within close by Communities where its water supply does not reach eg. Tigarikrom, Bekwai, Nyamebekyere and Mempeasem Borehole Projects

However there have been challenges facing the company in the aspect of water treatment. Illegal/ Legally claimed mining activities have increased turbidity of water from the Tano River, requiring more chemical treatment. This directly affects cost of production as well as Portability of drinking water. This compelled us to opt for the construction of more bore holes for production and communities.

  • A population of over 400,000 people benefits from Samartex constructed and maintained road network eg. Samreboi to Dadiesoaba, Dadiesoaba to Sureso, Samreboi to Abokyia, Abokyia to Nyankoman, NHyankoman to Amowie, Mile4 to Anguzu, Yiwaboa Nkwanta to Tetteh Junction, Amoaku to Ohiamatuo, Freetown to Accra Village, Hyamennae Congo. Also pothole filling on roads such as Sureso to Manso Amenfi
  • Totaling 160kilometers. Cutting across three (3) districts, an annual estimated cost of between GH¢ 1,000,000  and GH¢ 1,300,000  is required and used in maintaining this road network
  • Jobs carried out include:

            Scarification

            Reshaping and Gravelling

            Pot Holes Filling

            Chip-sed

            Pushing and Formation

            Bridge and Culverts Construction and Repairs

 Social Responsibility Agreement

  • Act 547(section 3E, section 20), LI 2254, section 11(D) provide the legal framework for the implementation of the SRA. Timber and wood processing industries are required to pay 5% of stumpage to beneficiary communities which are all within a 5km radius of our operational areas.
