In the past years, Araromi neighborhood in Akure South Local Government area of Ondo State has been a flood and erosion prone area as a result of the Ala River which constantly overflows its bank. The flooding and erosion posed serious public health problems, economic and environmental consequences to the neighbourhood.
The Ondo State Government has recently solved this problem through the channelization of the Ala River. A concrete channel has been constructed to allow a proper collection and flow of the river. This channel, if properly managed by the natives of Araromi will have a positive impact on public health and the economy of the Akure South Local Government area of Ondo State.
