The officials of the Ministry on Wednesday clamped down on the illegal water factory known as A1 Pure Water,  located behind the 132 KVA at the Omisanjana area of Ado Ekiti, the State Capital after it was discovered running an unlawful business.

A team of Environmental Health Officers inspected the water factory and uncovered several violations to it’s  regulations. It was discovered that the factory had been operating without the necessary permits and licenses, rendering its operations illegal.

Moreover, the source of water used for the production of sachet water was identified as water from abandoned water well from a location across the road.

The practice raised serious health concerns among environmental health officers who were on a sanitary routine inspection of the area as the activities of the owner posed a significant threat to public health.

The utilization of well water, especially without proper treatment and regulation, can lead to the contamination of drinking water, exposing consumers to various health risks.

The leader of the team, Mr Samuel Adebayo emphasized the gravity of the situation, stating that, “the operation of the water factory poses a direct threat to the health and safety of the residents of Ekiti State. We must take immediate action to prevent any further harm to public health.”

The water factory was found to violate several standards and requirements set forth for sachet water production, further exacerbating the risk to public health. 

In light of these findings, The Environmental Sanitation Taskforce officials from the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources, proceeded to seal off the water factory.

The Commissioner for Environment and Natural Resources, Erelu Tosin Aluko Ajisafe expressed her concern over the situation, stating that, “the illegal operation of A1 Pure Water represents a clear disregard for public health and safety regulations. We will not tolerate such actions that put the lives of our citizens at risk.”

She explained that the closure of the water factory serves as a stern warning to other businesses operating within the state to adhere strictly to environmental regulations and standards.

The Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources reaffirms its commitment to safeguarding the environment and promoting public health throughout Ekiti State.
