The Lagos State Water Regulatory Commission has concluded plans to train drillers, table and sachet water producers and water tanker operators in skills to provide safe drinking water.
The Executive Secretary of LSWRC, Mrs Funke Adepoju, in a statement on Wednesday, said the workshop was aimed at preparing the operators to align with the commitment of the government to protect residents from unhygienic water.
According to her, the initiative is in line with the vision of the state government to ensure international best practices in water abstraction, production and supply.
“We have the mandate to enforce relevant laws with regards to their operation, but we want to get their buy-in because our principal focus is safety of consumers,” she added.
Adepoju said the workshop, which would hold from 4th to 5th December, 2020, was in furtherance of the public education policy of the commission.
She noted that the training also became imperative because water plays an important role in fighting the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
