Consultants from DHV in The Netherlands specializing in providing innovative and sustainable solutions to waste water management, water supply development and industrial waste water production have been met by the Energy minister Haja Afsatu Kabbah. They were led by Guma Valley’s acting general manager, Ibrahim Wilson, who underscored the importance of the visit at a time when the water supply situation in the city continues to pose serious problems. He told the minister that the visit of the DHV consultants was a follow-up of an earlier visit by another group of water consultants from ATKINS in the U.K who undertook studies on the water supply situation in the city with a view to developing a master plan that was presented to the government. The visiting team leader, Bob Bakker who is the DHV project director, expressed satisfaction for their visit to Freetown and to hold consultations with the Energy minister. They assured the minister of their willingness in providing the necessary assistance towards developing the water supply sector of the city after their visits to Guma’s Mile 13, the treatment plants at Babadorie and the various reservoirs including the Allen Town location. The team leader commented on the issue of leakages in the city’s water supply, and assured the minister that they would give it a priority with the aim of reducing the high level of wastage. Haja Afsatu Kabbah appealed to the consultants to pay special attention to the high leakages in the city and an increase in the water supply to the city. That request was responded to by the team leader who said they would link the master plan on Freetown strategic water and sanitation framework and operations among which would be the re-using of the wash water back to the dam by pumping it in to the dam by saving 5% of reusable water.
