Accra: Water Supply To Be suspended In Some Parts Over Damaged Pipelines
The Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) says there will be interruption in water supply to the eastern part of the Greater Accra Region from Monday, September 14th to Saturday, September 20th 2020.
This is to enable engineers of the GWCL to replace close to 2 kilometres of a weak session of the main 42-inch diameter transmission pipe-line from Kpong to Tema, which is causing the company to lose several volumes of water.
GWCL announced this in a press statement issued on Thursday, September 10, 2020.
“The Management of Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL), wishes to inform the general public, that there will be an interruption of water supply to the eastern part of the Greater Accra Region from Monday the 14th to Saturday the 20th of September, 2020.”
“GWCL Engineers will be replacing close to 2 kilometres of a weak session of the main 42-inch diameter transmission pipe-line from Kpong to Tema, which is causing GWCL to lose several volumes of water on a daily basis and consequently having a serious impact on the volumes available for consumption.”
It has thus urged consumers in Accra to store water.
“Management is, as a result, entreating consumers in Accra, especially consumers in the eastern part of the metropolis to store enough water for consumption during the period of the shut-down.” Affected areas
