Residents of Ada Totope in the Greater Accra Region are appealing to government for an immediate intervention to deal with the absence of potable water in the area.

Though sandwiched between the sea and the Songhor Lagoon, there is no clean water for drinking and cooking.

The community with a population of more than 3000 persons has two standpipes, both of which water hardly flows through.

This has forced residents to purchase clean water at exorbitant costs which they say is leaving them with no money to educate their children.
