THE GOVERNMENT OF LAGOS STATE HAS COMMENCED THE ENFORCEMENT OF ITS LAW TO REGULATE BORE HOLES DRILLING IN THE STATE.

BY THIS LAW THOSE WHO WANT TO DRILL BOREHOLE WILL NEED TO OBTAIN A PERMIT FROM THE STATE’S WATER REGULATORY COMMISSION WHILE THE BOREHOLE DRILLING COMPANY WILL REQUIRE A PERMIT.

COMMISSIONER FOR ENVIRONMENT AND WATER RESOURCES TUNJI BELLO WHO MADE THIS ANNOUNCEMENT SAID THE NEW REGULATIONS BECAME NECCESSARY TO CHECK INDISCRIMINATE WATER ABSTRACTION THROUGH BOREHOLES IN THE STATE THAT COULD LEAD TO OUTBREAK OF DISEASE OR EXTINCTION OF UNDERGROUND WATER BODIES

DRILLING OF BORE HOLES IS THE MAJOR PROCESS BY WHICH RESIDENTS GET THEIR WATER IN THE STATE,AND IT HAD EARLIER BEEN NOTED BY SOME STRUCTURAL ENGINEERS THAT INDISCRIMINATE DRILLING OF BORE HOLES CAN EXPOSE THE STATE TO THE RISK OF EARTH TREMOR OR AN EARTH QUAKE
