Lagos State Wastewater Management Office LSWMO was carved out of the erstwhile Sewage department of the office of drainage services in the Ministry of the Environment, Lagos State on the 3rd of September 2010 to oversee wastewater management in the state. The office was incorporated into the Lagos water corporation. The creation of the office was dictated by the need for an institutional reform in wastewater and related matters in Lagos state. The reforms resulted in the creation of a new wastewater brand that is attractive to the private sector and that will radically reduced bureaucracy to fast track the execution of plans and policies in the wastewater sector in the state. The climax of the reforms was the commissioning of the wastewater house on 28th December 2010.
