The Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) has announced an interruption in the supply of water to residents in parts of Accra beginning Monday 13 to 17 September 2021.
It is to pave way for the replacement of faulty valves on the main 900mm transmission pipe lines, which “impedes water flow and causes serious challenges in the distribution lines.”
“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 western part of the Greater Accra Region from Monday the 13th to Friday the 17th of Sept. 2021,” a statement issued by GWCL said.
“GWCL engineers will be replacing some faulty valves on the main 900mm transmission pipe lines, which impedes water flow and causes serious challenges in the distribution lines. 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 available for consumption.
“GWCL engineers will also take advantage of the shutdown to install some electromagnetic meters at the Weija Treatment Plant which will help in the company’s drive to reduce Non-Revenue Water,” the statement added.
GWCL has also advised consumers in Accra, especially consumers in the western part of the Greater Accra Region to store enough water for consumption during the period of the shut down.
The affected areas include; Weija, Gbawe, Kasoa, Mallam, Sakaman, Odorkor, Dansoman, Mamprobi, Agege, Korle-Gorno, Korle-Bu, Laterbiokorshie, Mataheko, North Industrial Area, Kaneshie.
Others are Awudome Estates, North Kaneshie, Abeka La Paz, Kwashieman, Anyaa, Santa Maria, Ablekuma, Alhaji, Tabora, Tesano, Dome, Taifa, Achimota and surrounding communities.
