The Management of Aqua Vitens Rand Limited has advised Ghanaians to conserve water as the Harmattan and the dry weather deepen across the country.

"Consumers will have to conserve and use water wisely so that the usual seasonal shortfall in water supply will not be felt', according to Stanley Martey, Communications Manager of AVRL

'Management is delighted that there is currently additional water from the just completed Weija expansion Project, also known as East-West Interconnection, in the system and therefore the shortfall will be minimised, but will be appreciated if consumers will manage the water to enable all consumers have enough,' he said .

Stanley Martey called on Ghanaians to stop indiscriminate watering of lawns with treated water, moderate the use of treated water for car washing, shut all taps when not in use and repair all leakages in their homes.

He also called on the general public to do well to report all   burst   pipes   and   leakages   immediately   to   the   nearest AVRL/GWCL district offices, Customer Service Centres, Fault Offices and the Call Centres.

All persons involved in illegal connections, by-passes and all malpractices against AVRL/GWCL, Mr. Martey said, must also be reported to the nearest AVRL/GWCL office.

He noted that the Company established a new Call Centre with toll-free 0800 40 000 number in December last year and encouraged the general public to call and make their complaints and enquiries related to water.

 'Management will also appreciate it if customers can also give a feedback on the water situation within their various communities', he posited.

'Management is grateful to the general public for the support to AVRL/GWCL in terms of sympathising with the Company, understanding and appreciating the water situation and adhering to water conservation measures throughout the past year.

'We are committed to the provision of water in adequate quantities to our cherished consumers, and we will not relent in our efforts towards the realisation of this vision', the Communications manager assured.
