A temporary interruption in the water supply flowing from the Kpong water treatment facility has been formally declared by the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL).
From Sunday, September 24, to Thursday, September 28, 2023, this disruption is planned to take place.
This disruption is being made to make it easier to repair the main transmission pipeline that runs from the Kpong treatment plant to the eastern part of Accra.
Gbetsile, Afienya, Zenu, Prampram, Mataheko, Dawhenya, Sakumono, Batsonaa, Klagon, Tema Township, Adjei Kojo, Borteyman, Santeo, and the adjacent vicinities are among the places where residents should be aware of the imminent disturbance.
In a statement, the GWCL explained that the main 42-inch transmission pipeline had become weak and prone to frequent failures since April 2021, resulting in water and revenue losses for the company due to high volumes and pressure in the pipeline.
“The work 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. This repair work will also reduce the inconvenience of frequent interruption of supply to customers and ensure long-term reliability of water supply.”
“GWCL is, therefore, entreating customers in the above-stated areas to store enough water during the period in which the works will be carried out.
Customers have been informed by management that water delivery would resume as soon as the renovations are finished, and they have expressed their great apology for any trouble this may have caused.
