River Tano poisoned; don’t drink from it – NADMO to communities

“All communities along the Tano river from Techiman – Tanoso to Chira, Duayaw Nkwanta, Bechem are advised strongly not to drink water from the Tano river effective today till further notice.

“This release is necessitated by an accident involving an articular truck carrying car battery at Tanoso in the Bono East Region,” NADMO said in a statement.

It added: “As a result of the accident, the acid in the battery diluted into the water culminating to the death of several aquatic animals including fishes, crocodiles etc.

“We are by this urging all to carry the message to the target communities/people along the Tano river bank to save human lives.”
