EDO STATE GOVERNMENT EFFORTS ON FLOOD AND EROSION CONTROL
Since the inception of the current administration a strategic institutional policy decision was for the Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of works to work in Synchrony.
The Ministry of work will only surface roads wherever the Ministry of Environment is constructing Primary and Secondary drains. Furthermore, both Ministries are involved in the inspection and certification of all road construction works that involves flood and erosion control structures.
