WAPCo seeks lasting solution to Bankuman waste menace PDF Print E-mail

Sprawling right behind the walls of the West African Gas Pipeline Company's (WAPCo) Tema Regulating and Metering (R&M) Station is a settlement known as Bankuman. This unplanned community, made up largely of temporary structures as shelter, though not directly on WAPCo property has become a source of major concern. Aside the occasional incursion onto the pipeline right-of-way by constructing unauthorized structures, community members frequently use the right-of-way as thoroughfare and indiscriminately litter the environment. Mounts of stinking refuse, including human excreta, have resulted in insanitary conditions that threatens the health and wellbeing of this community. In addition, various unsafe activities by the community members, including the setting of fires on and close to the Right-of-Way and the R&M facility, pose a serious threat to the safety of the pipeline.
