Les Brasseries To Offer Portable Water To Population.

Laying of the foundation stone by the City Mayor

Cameroon’s leading brewery company, Les Brasseries du Cameroun has come to the assistance of the population leaving around it’s operating headquarters in the Northwest Regional capital of Bamenda, with an ultra modern bole hole costing 32 million FCFA.

The foundation stone of the project was laid on Thursday December 10, 2020 by Paul Achombong, Bamenda City Council Mayor. Paul Achombong thanked Les Brasseries for the kind gesture coming at the time they are most affected by the ongoing crisis in the region.

He described the action as unbelievable saying”it’s unthinkable that we boycott buying water from brasseries, instead they offer more portable water to the public” commending the action as a great mark of responsibility and care towards the people. He instructed the quarter head and the users to jealousy guard the project and make good use of it.

Mr. Chi Francis, Senior Chief of Commercials at Les Brasseries said they “remained committed” towards the public despite being one of those hardest hit by the crisis.

“Nothing can stop us from doing what is right” he said. Many families, children, businesses and their dependents have been affected, dropped out of school, go hungry, lost property and so on because we have taken a direct hit in this crisis. These are our children, our husbands and wives, our employers and employees. We are the ones loosing while others elsewhere continue to grow he explained.

The ultra modern bole hole will be powered by solar energy and will consist of a 5000 litre storage tank raised at the height of 7m. It will have four stand taps with the possibility of further extension. The water will be drilled from far bellow the earth’s surface. According to the officials of Deep Water Works, incharged of the project, it will take four weeks to complete the works and hand over to the population. The system put in place guarantees that, at any given moment there will be at least 4000L of water available in the reservoir. Once the water level drops to 4000L, the systems automatically refill the tank to 5000L.

Mr. Nde Christopher, the quarter head of the neighbourhood expressed the gratitude of his people and promised that they will do everything thing withing their powers to ensure its sustainability. There are ongoing discussions between the users, Les Brasseries, the Bamenda City Council and the various technical services in charge of water supply to exploit possibilities of extending the water through a small network to feed homes.
