The perennial flood that engulfs Elmina Tatarkessim and its environs may be a thing of the past when the rains set in this year due to the construction of a drainage system directed into the Benya Lagoon.

The drain was constructed at the cost of GHc560,000 and funded by a Dutch philanthropist, Henk Vooijs through the Elmina-Gouda Sister City relationship.

At a brief ceremony to inaugurate it over the weekend, some 200 school children dropped toy ducklings into the beautiful and well-built drains as they swam gracefully all the way through into the Lagoon as excited residents gleefully ran to catch a glimpse.
