All the five corroded gates of the Ogun State Water Corporation’s dam undergoing rehabilitation at Iberekodo have been removed and replaced with new ones.
Rehabilitation work is on schedule as electro-mechanical and other civil works are progressing.
The dam, commissioned in 1962 with manually operated five steel gates, had its gates heavily corroded with significant loss of water noticeable during the dry season.
Until the bold move of the present Prince Dapo Abiodun-led Ogun State Government, the dam had not experienced repair works since its commissioning.
The goal of the rehabilitation is to ensure availability of enough water for processing and distribution to customers all year round.
The Ogun State Water Corporation is reassuring customers that potable water supply will resume as soon as the rehabilitation work is completed.
