Abstract

Many of the states in Nigeria have the provision of portable water supply for the people high on their priority list agenda. There are however quite a number of options to doing this particularly in rural areas. This paper examined the various options in Kwara State based on the physical resources available and the subsequent analysis shows that the state has enough water to open up the rural areas, not only for domestic purpose but also for industrial development too. Further, it was equally observed that the major hindrance to achieving this goal bothers largely on government commitments, finance and management.
