Oro MPs want Popondetta water plant relocated

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.
