A sod-cutting ceremony was yesterday performed at the Water Research Institute, of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research offices in Accra for the construction of an ultra-modern laboratory.

The central laboratory would consist of analysis room for aqua-culture underground water, food security and undertake research into health related issues concerning water such as bilharzias, elephantiasis and mosquito among others.

It’s completion would also end the mid shift system of the institution moving from one facility to the other in to undertake research and laboratory works among others.

The Director-General of the Institute, Dr. Victor Agyeman said the construction of the laboratory was timely, because as a body tasked with the responsibility to undertake water findings, it could not afford to have its permanent laboratory instead of moving from one place to the other.

He said a country could only develop through effective and reliable in science, technology and researches adding that for people to value science, there must be practical aspect of it.

Dr. Agyeman said practical aspect of science were essential noting that for people  to practice what they learned in the classroom, there was the need for relevant facilities for that.

The Board Chairman of the Institute, Mr. Amponsah Mensah, who chaired the function, said the facility would not be for the Institute alone, but opened to other institutions, agencies, corporate bodies and individuals for use.

The Project Manager, Mr. Richard Asamoah, said it would take between four to five years to complete the project, saying the workers would ensure that they work to meet the deadline.
