The ongoing rehabilitation of the Ogun State Water Corporation dam at its Iberekodo, Abeokuta Water Scheme is in top gear as the contractor handling the project is working day and night in order to complete the project before the stipulated date.

This was disclosed during a visit to the site by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Water Resources, Engr. Kunle Otun and the General Manager of the Corporation, Engr. Oluseye Maku.

The dam, which was commissioned in 1962 was earlier manually operated, had its parts heavily corroded prior to the commencement of the rehabilitation project.

This led to a significant loss of resources, especially as it fed two existing water treatment plants – in Arakanga and Iberekodo, respectively.

Mr. Alex, an assistant project manager for the contractor on site affirmed that the rehabilitation works which is geared towards upgrading the facility to a fully automated system, will be completed as scheduled.

The project duration is 18 months and with the spate of currently going on at the site, Abeokuta and its environs will start enjoying uninterrupted water supply by July this year.
