A frustrated Provincial Governor Gary Juffa called on the State-owned water supplier to find a solution.
“I am planning to go see the Water PNG Board.
“The dam is always washed away (during heavy rains).
“The water problem had existed since 1960, access to clean drinking water is a constitutional right,” Juffa said.
The water issue was also raised during this month’s sitting of Parliament.
Ijivitari MP David Arore said when it rains; the dam and pumps are damaged, and if there is plans to relocate the water treatment plant.
