NIWA Deploys Swamp Devil in the War Against Water Hyacinths

The National Inland Waterways Authority (NIWA) has announced its deployment of Swamp Devil machine to clear the Lagos waterways of water hyacinths which have made it difficult to navigate the water channels within the state.

According to the Head of Marine Services of NIWA, Mrs Sarah Suleman, the machine will be in operation through to the festive season to ensure that all the waterways are cleared for easy navigation especially with increased traffic.

NIWA is the Federal Government Agency responsible for the regulation and management of the nation’s waterways especially those in Lagos State.
