Lagos state to Equip drillers and Table water producers with modern skills
The Lagos State Government has concluded plans to equip drillers, table and sachet water producers, and water tanker operators with skills to operate in line with the vision of the State Government to ensure international best practices in water abstraction, production and supply.
The Executive Secretary, LSWRC, Mrs. Funke Adepoju, in a statement issued on Tuesday said the training scheduled to hold on 4th and 5th of December, 2020, is aimed at preparing the operators to align with the commitment of LASG to protect residents from unhygienic water.
Adepoju stated that although the Commission has the mandate to enforce relevant laws relating to abstraction, production and supply of water, it is going a step further to properly enlighten operators in the industry on best practices necessary to ward off conflict of interests.
She averred that the workshop is in furtherance of the public education policy of the Commission, stressing that all COVID-19 safety protocols will be strictly adhered to, while a certificate of participation will be issued to participants after the programme.
Adepoju emphasised that the training exercise became imperative in view of the fact that water plays an important role in the fight against the spread of Coronavirus pandemic, which is a global health issue.
