The Togolese government is launching a project to improve the drinking water supply in the city of Lomé (AEP-Lomé). The first project concerns the construction of a 1,300 m3 water tower in the Golfe 7 council. At least eight other councils are concerned by the drinking water supply project.

Within 20 months, the populations of Golfe 7, a council of the Greater Lomé Autonomous District, will benefit from improved drinking water services. Officials of the Société Togolaise des Eaux (TDE) and the Société de Patrimoine Eau et Sanitation en Milieu Urbain et Semi-Urban (SP-Eau) recently launched the construction of a new water tower.

The future facility will be able to store 1,300 m3 of fresh water, pumped from the water table to supply the inhabitants of Sagbado, Ségbé, Lankouvi, Apédokoè and Yokoè. The work underway in Gulf 7 is part of the project to improve the supply of drinking water to the city of Lomé (AEP-Lomé), launched on August 2nd, 2021.

Installation of drinking water pipes

The Golfe 7 water tower is the first of a series of facilities to be built in the greater Lomé area of Togo. The Société de patrimoine eau et assainissement en milieu urbain et semi-urbain has announced the construction of four additional water towers. The AEP-Lomé project also involves the laying of several pipes to bring drinking water to households. The project will also benefit the councils of Golfe 2, Golfe 5, Golfe 6, Agoè Nyivé 1, Agoè Nyivé 2, Agoè Nyivé 3, Agoè Nyivé 4 and Agoè Nyivé 5.

The initiative aims to build 300 boreholes equipped with human-powered pumps, as well as to rehabilitate 200 existing boreholes in several villages in the Kara and Savanes regions.
