Mr James Buchan, the General Manager (Operations) of Cross River Water Board, has said the board spends an average of N25 million monthly on diesel and chemicals to sustain water supply, urging the consumers who owed to settle their bills.

Buchan said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Calabar on Sunday, saying that the board was worried about the N300 million debts, owed it by various consumers in the state as it is beginning to pose a challenge to its operations.

The general manager said that the state government paid its water bills regularly, urging the consumer’s to emulate the government by paying their bills to avoid disconnection.

Buchan further advised the consumers to always make genuine complaints about the services of the board to guarantee uninterrupted clean water supply.

The manager also urged consumers to shun illegal connection and to report to the board, those, including its staff members, who engaged in fraudulent activities.

“We want to supply to the public well treated water, we want to provide 24 hours service to the people, but we can only do this with the help of the people,’’ he said.

Buchan promised that Geographic Information System had been put in place to streamline the operations of the board and improve services.

He said the board was also worried over the damage of its pipelines worth more than N300 million by road construction companies in the state.

Buchan said the board had, however, drawn the attention of the officials of the concerned construction companies to the development.
