Sewerage leak finally fixed

National, Normal


AFTER almost two months of foul smelling sewerage leaking just outside the Nambawan Super compound at Koki in Port Moresby, residents can breathe easy again.
The leakage, which emanated from two sewerage systems at the entrance of the compound, was fixed last Monday by Eda Ranu.
Their quick response came after The National published a story on the health risks to those living in the area.
“We have many children in the compound and we worry that they might get sick from the smell and playing near the area,” a resident said.
Attempts to get comments from relevant authorities at Eda Ranu yesterday on the cause of the leakage were unsuccessful.
Residents at the compound expressed their gratitude to The National for bringing the issue up to Eda Ranu to get it fixed before school starts next month.
