The Legedadi ground water project built was inaugurated over the weekend in Ethiopia. Present at the inauguration was Ethiopia’s Deputy Prime Minister, Demeke Mekonnen.
The facility has a capacity to generate 40,000 cubic meters of water per day and addresses the potable water shortage of more than 324,000 residents in the eastern part of Addis Ababa.
Mayor of Addis Ababa City Administration, Diriba Kuma, also present at the inauguration, said the new facility would improve access to water in the capital, particularly in the northern and north-western parts of the city.
“Five deep water wells, including the Akaki groundwater phase 3A project are nearing completion will go operational next month,” Diriba said.
