Cameroon’s Mefou water and sewage treatment plant that will boost supplies in the capital Yaounde will be operational by August, Water Resources and Energy Minister Basile Atangana Kouna said today.
The $80 million supply and treatment facility will add 50,000 cubic meters of water a day for about 2 million residents in Yaounde, the minister said. Water supplies in Yaounde are about 100,000 cubic meters compared with demand of 300,000 cubic meters, Atangana Kouna said.
