Tigray State is set to undertake a safe drinking water project at an outlay of 8 billion Birr. The project is aimed at addressing the water shortage in the state’s capital city, Mekelle.
According to the State’s Water Resource Bureau Head, Tesfamichael Gebreyohannes, the project will be undertaken from what is secured from the Chinese Government.
The project would be launched in September and scheduled to be completed in 3 years, the head noted.
When the project is complete and starts giving service, it will supply 147,000 cubic meters of water per day.
