Ms Ayittey commissions two weeds harvesters and transport barges at Kpong

Two weed harvesters and two transport barges for harvesting water weeds were on Wednesday commissioned at Kpong in the Eastern Region to assist in reducing the spread of invasive water plants.

The commissioning formed part of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s initiative dubbed “Ghana Integrated Management of Invasive Aquatic Weeds Project” which is funded by the African Development Bank (AfDB).

It aims at controlling water weeds which include hyacinth, water lettuce and Kariba weeds in Tano and Volta rivers.
