More drinking water for Yaounde residents

Yaoundé, Cameroon - Residents of the Cameroonian capital, Yaounde, will have more access to drinking water following the commissioning of a water treatment plant at Mefou on the outskirts of the city Thursday, PANA reported.

The plant will add 50,000 cubic metres to the available potable water in the capital city.

Yaounde's daily requirement for drinking water is estimated at 300,000 cubic metres, while about 100,000 cubic metres were available before the plant was commissioned.

The Mefou's water treatment plant, which cost 72 billion CFA Franc (US$149 million) was built with financial support from France through the French Development Agency (AFD), the European Investment Bank (EIB) and Camwater, the country's water company.
