The Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) has announced that engineers will be working on the main transmission pipeline from the Kpong Treatment Plant to the eastern part of Accra.

For this reason, the management of GWCL in a press statement, revealed that there will be an interruption in water supply from Sunday 24th September to Thursday 28th September 2023.

Affected areas include Gbetsile, Afienya, Zenu, Prampram, Mataheko, Katamanso, Dawhenya, Sakumono, Batsonaa, Klagon, Tema Township, Adjei Kojo, Borteyman, Santeo and surrounding areas.

The GWCL urged residents of these communities to store enough water during the period in which the works will be carried out.

GWCL, however, assured that the water supply will resume as soon as the works are completed.

This forms part of GWCL’s effort to rehabilitate its faulty pipelines. This repair work, the company added, will also reduce the inconvenience of frequent interruption of supply to customers and ensure a long-term reliability of water supply.

“In April 2021, the GWCL announced to the public, that the main 42-inch transmission pipeline was weak and as a result gave way frequently due to the high volumes and pressure in the pipeline thereby making the company lose a lot of water and revenue.”

“The works involved in changing the pipeline is capital intensive, therefore, Management has resolved to change the weak portions of the line to reduce cost and to maintain the integrity of the transmission pipeline,” the company noted.
