The Minister said this while answering questions from Parliament on the preparedness of his Ministry for this year's raining season.

He said they were also updating the hydro and urban geographical map and would be conducting hydro-geological studies on “a basin by basin basis”.

Mr. Atta Akyea indicated that “if Ghana should have a permanent solution, we should go to places where you would not see filth floating in drains, where you would not see any sewage - everything is underground”.
 

He said although that was going to cost huge sums of money, it was better to go that path to have a permanent fix.
