Lagos State Government seals 30 water factories
30 water factories have been sealed in the state by the Lagos State Government.
The State Water Regulatory Committee of Lagos has found that, on Tuesday, factories have been sealed for offenses ranging from unhygienic production to operation without respect for good production.
LASWARCO Executive Secretary Mrs. Funke Adepoju said that, in order to encourage producers to learn about best practices in the interests of citizens, LASWARCO had taken steps to achieve enforcement.
She said, “In as much as we have the mandate to ensure that operators remain in business, we cannot fold our arms and allow infractions to fester without being addressed.
“The primary regulatory mandate of the commission is to ensure that operators in the water abstraction, production, and distribution industry comply with best manufacturing procedures to safeguard the health of the people.”
She said the level of poor and unwholesome practices discovered in some water factories in the state was not only disheartening but frightening, vowing that LASWARCO would do all within its powers to ward off any attempt to put the lives of residents in jeopardy.
Adepoju said the factories would remain sealed until their owners comply with all safety procedures.
