Parts Of Accra To Be Without Water From September 13 As GWCL fixes Faulty Pipelines
There will be an interruption in water supply to western part of the Greater Accra Region from the Monday 13th to 17 September 2021. The Management of the Ghana Water Company Limited in statement said its engineers will be replacing some faulty valves on the main 900 mm transmission pipelines, which impedes water flow
and causes serious challenges in the distribution lines. It also said that there are some leakages also within the supply area, causing GWCL to lose several volumes of water daily and consequently having a serious impact on the volumes also available for consumption. GWCL engineers will also take advantage of the shutdown to
also install some electromagnetic meters at the Weija Treatment Plant, which will help in the company’s drive to reduce Non-Revenue Water, it added. The company thus entreated consumers in the Accra and especially consumers in the western part of the metropolis to store enough water for consumption during the period
of the shut-down. The areas envisaged to be hardest hit include; Weija, Gbawe, Kasoa, Mallam, the Sakaman, Odorkor, Dansoman, Mamprobi, Agege, Korle-Gorno, Korle-Bu, Laterbiokorshie, Mataheko, North Industrial Area, Kaneshie, Awudome Estates, North Kaneshie, Abeka La Paz, Quarshieman, Anyaa, Santa Maria, the
Ablekuma, Alhaji, the Tabora, Tesano, Dome, the Taifa, Achimota and surrounding communities. The company assured that water supply will resume immediately the repair works are completed. It also said it has put in place measures to serve the affected areas, so the impact will not be severe.
