The residents of Calabar  are now resorting to sachet water for bathing and cooking, following acute shortage of drinking water.



Report shows that for over three months, Cross River State Water Board has not pumped water to customers, making life uncomfortable for consumers in the metropolis. Even before the current scarcity, water pumped to houses and business premises were not treated.
   
Ekpo Abasi, Mayne Avenue, Inyamg, Yellow Duke, Ette Agbor, Satellite Town, Ediba, 8 Miles, Calabar South, Federal Housing, Aka-Ifa, State Housing, Marian and 8 Miles, are major streets affected by the issue.



Consumers now patronise sachet water dealers and boreholes, leading to increase in demand of sachet water in the metropolis.
