— Water from wells being used for commercial purposes in the capital were constructed near latrines and dump sites and could be contaminated, according to the Liberia Water and Sewage Corporation.

Company chief Hun Bu Tulay said water from the polluted wells was being sold as purified water.

He said the utility would soon be closing down those wells.
