Five dams in the Bawku West District in the Upper East Region are to be rehabilitated under the 2007 Northern Flood Rehabilitation Project.
They are the Boya Kpalsako, Yarigu, Goziesi Sakom and Sapelliga dams.
The District Chief Executive (DCE), Mr Desmond Bugbilla, announced this at the assembly's second ordinary meeting this year at Zebilla the district capital.
He said work on the project, which has already been advertised, will soon commence to bring relief to the people.
Mr Bugbilla said in addition to the dams rehabilitation, 11 bore holes and 17 hand-dug wells have been awarded on contract for disinfection and rehabilitation.
He was happy about the rapid development of the area, which he attributed to the hard work and dedication of the assembly members and the decentralized departments.
The DCE also commended the government for providing Bawku West District with its fair share of development projects.
According to him, two projects have been approved for execution in the district under the second phase of the sixth European Union Micro-Projects Programme.
