The water company has explained why it cannot meet the safe drinking water needs of residents in Obuasi and its environs.

The concerns come after about 140,000 people are being deprived of safe drinking water in the Obuasi Municipality.

The effect of galamsey on water supply in the Obuasi Municipality is worsening as the contamination of the rivers continues.
